http://www.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/08/01/congress.surveillance/index.html I've been following this quite closely, and have come to settle about halfway between both parties on this guy. While I believe he is intentionally being decietful in his statements concerning the lawyers' firings, I also feel that the Democratic party is going after him from too many angles trying to catch him on something/anything. As for this current article about the clarification of the phone/wire-tapping program being considered the "whole project", and him saying it isn't (and the NSA saying they can't discuss any other aspects) leads me to believe that there ARE other aspects of unwarrented surveillance. I figure there are only two things left : GPS Tracking of Phones/Cars/Anything w/GPS - I have no problem with. I'm not hiding anything about where I go; and those that want to can turn that feature off. Internet - The only other topic left is that within this program is unwarranted email monitoring or internet traffic monitoring. While I can see it possible to want to protect the citizens, at the same time its a question of where you draw the line. If I'm some 18yr old kid downloading illegal movies and music, and I download something called "terrorist training video" just to see what it is, and it gets caught by the filter somehow, or I mention it in email, and they flag me, am I screwed? Would they then use that flag, be lead to illegal non-terrorist activities such as movie downloading, and then be arrested for it? I would feel that is nto only a violation of civil liberties but a corruption of what the program is intended for. Does anyone have any comments or opinions about this trial/inquiry/questioning/hearing whatever you want to call it?
