Even if the case went to court and revealed appalling criminality on the part of
the government, I wonder whether there would be any accountability, or would it

While the article is confusing, "... NSA operations director, and Michael
Hayden, who headed the federal intelligence organization in 2002, both submitted
declarations... claiming there was a mass, warrantless surveillance program at
the Olympics." But the very title (and article contents elsewhere), say
otherwise. While one may question the importance of this now, it does go the
heart of what the NSA and like agencies are really doing.And this
leads to and raises a larger, major issue: What about the Vault 7 Wikileaks
dump, clearly exposing the nefarious activities of our intelligence agencies,
along with related exposures of NSA wrongdoing? After my second call to Senator
Hatch's Office, I was told that Senator Hatch yet has no plans for dealing
with this most major information. All I can think of is to encourage others to
familiarize themselves with the significance of this exposure, and to ask their
Utah reps, including Senator Hatch, to at least issue a statement on this, and
presumably what they intend to do.
Rocky is still around?
Who cares? We had just had 9-1 so if they were it may have been justified.
