Feinstein, who has steadfastly defended the NSA's mass surveillance programs, added that both Barack Obama and members of her committee, which is supposed to received classified briefings, had been kept in the dark about operations to target foreign leaders.
"It is abundantly clear that a total review of all intelligence programs is necessary so that members of the Senate Intelligence Committee are fully informed as to what is actually being carried out by the intelligence community," Feinstein said in a statement to reporters.
"Unlike NSA's collection of phone records under a court order, it is clear to me that certain surveillance activities have been in effect for more than a decade and that the Senate Intelligence Committee was not satisfactorily informed.
You know what I like about Dianne Feinstein. I like that she is living breathing proof that the politicians in DC dont have the people's interest. I like that she's a sociopath and a psychopath. She is in my eyes one of the worst of the worst in DC, a pathetic little worm of a human being. Along with countless others in the capitol. ... I just absolutely dispise her and others in DC. No love for the people they are supposed to represent instead it's the millitary industrial complex, the too big to fail mega banks, and the big pharma/big agra mega corps.
The only thing that scares me more than Dianne Feinstein is the people that vote for her. Left and right ideals aside, this women would have you begging for government scraps off the dirty floor if she had the votes.
I guess as much as I loath her, she really isn't at the core of the problem, the real problem lies with people not educating themselves on the very country they live in. It's perplexing, infuriating and mildly embarrassing.
You know she is part of the NSA right?
Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (Chairman) Means she gets to play Board member in charge of the NSA.
which means she is lying!
