I was attempting to be sarcastic towards BO. There is not much we can do if Congress approves the resettlement, and I was only looking at it from his
administration's standpoint. I am sure BO would love the opportunity to look like a savior and ratchet up his surveillance to the next level.
I agree with your sentiments as the situation stands, but know that BO and Congress would say they need even more latitude to protect us from
It is important to note that the surveillance networks are not an exact science and have flaws, because human behavior is not easy to predict in all
cases. The Boston bombing was on the NSA's radar, but someone decided the brothers were not a credible threat. In this case, the system worked, but
failed due to human error.
As for the mosques and no wiretapping/intrusions, that is BO's attempt to keep the nation of Islam from going crazy about their freedoms involving
their religion. Bottom line, if BO intends to resettle the Syrian rebels, more privacy has to be lost, which I think is his endgame, and he thinks the
ends justify the means.
Sorry that my sarcastic tone could not be heard, but I intended it to be there.
