Charlie Savage of NYT: "And so President Obama's defense today is, this is not illegal, all three branches of government are on board for it, the courts are overseeing it, Congress authorized it and oversees it, and so therefore there are no rule of law concerns.
Obviously, civil libertarians might beg to differ on constitutional grounds, but certainly it will be an uphill climb to make that case with three branches of government behind it." PBS Newshour 7 June 2013
And right he is, law it is. All of those with the tag of (R) fully supported this under the bush, not a moderate voice was heard against, led by their talking head propaganda machine from the FOX on down. Everyone else was 'unpatriotic' if voicing opposition.
Apparently even a majority of Democrats and Independents were on board with the then teabags in support as well. Most everything that went on under the bush. For they kept many of those supportive reps on the countries payroll and elected many even more of a radical extremist mindset into office, as they collective walked away from any and all 'Accountability' which brought on the needs for enhanced intelligence gathering as more hatreds towards us were created and al Qaeda style criminal terrorism was spread far and wide.
Not only all three branches of Government but the greater majority of the country supported, so look in the mirror people, we're all to blame! Us labeled 'unpatriotic' couldn't stop the collapse of the country and it's policies!!
