When the NY Times published an article detailing a program used to track international money transfers the White House strongly condemned the Times as
abetting the enemy and as disgraceful. Strongly stating that they had briefed the congress and that they were within their rights. Well Senator Diane
Feinstein has a different story.
STEPHANOPOULOS: The White House said they briefed the Congress on this matter and there is no law called into question. Do you believe that a law is
called into question and that this program might have been illegal?
FEINSTEIN: Well, I’m on the Intelligence Committee. I can tell you when I was briefed and when the committee was briefed — and that was when it
became apparent that the New York Times had the story and was going to run it. And that’s when and why they came to us and briefed us.
STEPHANOPOULOS: So you knew nothing about it before the New York Times was asking questions?
FEINSTEIN: That’s correct.
Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
First and foremost their is a video link to what she said at the bottom of the page.
What really is shocking about this whole situation is that its not shocking. The administration told us the briefed congress...when in actuality they
didn't brief congress until they(The congress) was aware of the fact that the times was going to publish an article on it.
So not only was the congress NOT briefed on the Original NSA spying program they weren't briefed on this most recent one as well....and the
administration told the American People that they had.
WOW!!!...So now we really cant trust a word they say...we briefed your representatives....translates to we told them right before they would have
found out anyways....The whole its better to not ask and get in trouble instead of ask and hear no policy seems to be how this Administration works.
With the Supreme court scaling back War powers and more and more indictments being handed down to Senior Conservative officials it makes you wonder
how much longer before people start seriously looking at impeachment.
Read the article watch the Video...this is good stuff
