    Knowing a little bit about what it takes and what information the U.S. Government requires to get a Top Secret security clearance, I do wonder if Barack Obama could have ever passed the requirements to obtain one, had he gone for a job in the CIA, FBI, or a military area that requires it. I suspect not, due to so many questionable parts of his background. However that ship has sailed, and he, who might never have even qualified for a secret clearance, (much less top secret) now has access to the most sensitive information in the whole government. I've never trusted certain political people to have that kind of information just because they were elected to some office. Especially a guy like Obama.


    You are absolutely right! See my above.

    U.S. citizens should demand an immediate stop to all financial aid that the U.S. gives to Israel. Then the U.S. and Israel can have an conversation about spying. Israel is a state that sponsors bigotry and intolerance. The U.S. should keep a very close eye on this supposed ally.

    The super rich are behind Obama?? No wonder that Romney speech with the "47%" statement got leaked out. It must have been poor people who were just pretending to be rich! Yeah, that's it.

    I'd like some spying, and surveillance on our political leaders.

    We may be shocked from what shows up.

    The arrogant king (Obama) does not have to obey any rules- he makes the rules- he is the only president in history to completely hide hide past history (at the cost of millions) and the only president to FORGE his birth certificate- can a human being be any more arrogant? he can when he has the super rich behind him-

    Two names that should be familiar to the Israelis: Jonathan Pollard and Ben-ami Kadish.

    Geezo weezo, get off it. Everyone spies on everyone else. They do t to the extent they have capabilities. If a country does not have that capability, they wish they did. Israel has no room to talk. They are prolific spyers. This is all about public opinion and scoring points through the media. England spies on Germany, Germany spies on us and we spy on the Israelis. All our allies spy. We do to. The only difference is that it is a sore point in the public's psyche right now. So.... you get these type of articles attempting to get some admissions and agreements. The US will ignore it and we will all move on.

    That is a riot. Though I support Israel's right to exist, and am pro-Israel on most issues, Israel telling us not to spy is the "pot calling the kettle black. Israel has what is acknowledged as one of the largest (after China) spying networks in the U.S. Even Hollywood producers have admitted to being involved getting U.S. nuclear secrets. With no response by the U.S. Government..

    We really shouldn't care what Israel thinks about this. They exist because we spy and monitor the area. In a network connected world, it is near impossible to weed-out specific countries from monitoring within a region.
