"...a previously undisclosed program for tapping into Internet usage is authorized by Congress...."

Yeah, but it isn't constitutional.

What ever his excuse or secret and illegal laws they have written to empower themselves with constitutional powers is what we have to focus on. There is no reason or justification for spying on the American people or visitors to this country or international communication. The constitution, freedom of information act, and rights of privacy prevents federal powers to our information. Counter terrorism in the United States is not justification for any federal engorgement infringement or violation of the constitutional limiting their jurisdiction.

It is the duty and job of the president and government to secure our borders and the soverignty of this nation so that international terrorist cannot breach our security and constitutional right to peace and law and order.

This intelligence chief has his focus on national security in the wrong country. He should focus and enforce border controls and international travel and keep out the threats to the people of this county. Any threat by internal civil matters are the jurisdiction of local law enforcement, not international terrorist organization with mercenary federal threats.

If this man and agency were doing their jobs, the United States would not be letting terrorist dictators and foreign nationals breach our borders.

Is the war in Afghanistan authorized by Congress?
