I thought that Biden was the gaff maker in this administration... nah, there are plenty of them. Today Is John Kerry's turn. (CUT AND PASTED)

During a press briefing on Monday, Kerry said that Assad could avoid American air strikes by giving up all his chemical weapons within a week. Within hours, the State Department was forced to walk Kerry's new red line back with the claim that he was making a "rhetorical argument about the impossibility and unlikelihood of Assad turning over chemical weapons he has denied he used." It seems, then, reasonable to conclude that Kerry spoke out of turn. Kerry was not authorized to offer Syria an "out" or a new ultimatum. But Kerry's hypothetical hyperbole appears to have already backfired. In an obvious desire to make Kerry pay for his flub and throw a wrench in Obama's determination to go to war with Syria, Putin has seized upon Kerry's hypothetical and called on Syria to accept Kerry's offer and turn over all of its chemical w

Obama administration had restrictions on NSA reversed in 2011

The Obama administration secretly won permission from a surveillance court in 2011 to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agency’s use of intercepted phone calls and e-mails, permitting the agency to search deliberately for Americans’ communications in its massive databases, according to interviews with government officials and recently declassified material.

In addition, the court extended the length of time that the NSA is allowed to retain intercepted U.S. communications from five years to six years — and more under special circumstances, according to the documents, which include a recently released 2011 opinion by U.S. District Judge John D. Bates, then chief judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Continued: What had not been previously acknowledged is that the court in 2008 imposed an explicit ban — at the government’s request — on those kinds of searches, that officials in 2011 got the court to lift the bar and that the search authority has been used.

Together the permission to search and to keep data longer expanded the NSA’s authority in significant ways without public debate or any specific authority from Congress. The administration’s assurances rely on legalistic definitions of the term “target” that can be at odds with ordinary English usage. The enlarged authority is part of a fundamental shift in the government’s approach to surveillance: collecting first, and protecting Americans’ privacy later.

The only deniers to politicizing are the ones promoting their politics at this time, I would never make anything political as I am sure you deniers wouldn't! It's GWB's fault isn't it? Isn't EVERYTHING??

Scare, I'd like to take your comment a little further; stop and frisk is like saying everybody is guilty until 'we' prove you're innocent. The 'we' in this case is of course the police who have been allowed to ignore their mandate to 'protect and serve', which, by the way, is no longer a logo on NYC police vehicles. Probably because they don't mean protect and serve the citizenry, they mean protect and serve each other.

I somehow remember candidate Obama saying that GWB had overstepped his authority and was too invasive... he said that he would end that, close gitmo and a plethora of other HUGE LIES and guess what, he politicized all of these things and furthered them to astronomical new heights! Now on top of all that the Peace Prize winner wants to GO TO WAR!!! NICE! EVERYTHING today is POLITICAL... EVERYTHING!

Most of this was started with the Patriot Act and is continuing to flourish, whether progressive or regressive. Not a political issue

Totally Unconstitutional. We should be free from the fear of the Government arbitrarily stopping us and frisking us. After all this is not 1930s Germany.

adkkev, I truly do understand where you are coming from but under the Obama watch the targeting of political adversaries has achieved unseen levels. As far as defending the current administration, you are not the only one that has gone that route lately... it is becoming harder and harder to find a progressive that will defend him and stand up to be denied persuasion!

"You can not expect privacy anyplace on earth any longer. Those that want to know what you are doing can. Your entire life is an open book and YOU can be targeted by what you do, say or belong to." Very true ToT. Although I'll differ in that it doesn't matter what political party/group is in power (not a defense of the current admin).

You can not expect privacy anyplace on earth any longer. Those that want to know what you are doing can. Your entire life is an open book and YOU can be targeted by what you do, say or belong to. Just like what the Obama administration has done. Except they cannot profile you if you are a minority, that would just be wrong..(sarcasm)

There would not be a worry of terrorism if we minded our own business and stayed out of the affairs of other nations when our interference is not wanted. Argentina is not a terrorist target, Australia is not a terrorist target, etc... We have created our own problems or should I say our so called elected officials have created our problems.

Ron, a private citizen can blab any information they want about themselves, several Amendments reinforce that freedom to be as stupid as they want. The Govt. is supposed to be by the people and for the people. There are many who believe that if you're not doing anything wrong, you shouldn't have anything to hide. If that's right shouldn't the Govt. declassify EVERYTHING??? On the other hand, if the Govt. isn't doing anything wrong why are they so ****** off that we found out about it????

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Our fore fathers had experienced what happens when the government takes too many liberties. In America We the people must be protected from the Government. Tee is no perfect solution, so we must take the good with the bad. We can also extend this to the gun control nonsense as well.
