    The spying monster has taken on a life of its own.

    But the lobbyists can ply congress critters with all sorts of stuff to find out what’s going on in congress and to influence it. All quite legal, well some of it…

    Not that it is legal for the CIA to run domestic operations, but then again, congress does live on another world…

    You’re living in the past, in ancient times, in the 20th century. Get with the times. It was agreed the CIA needed to do more domestic surveillance to prevent another 9/11/‘01. And the NSA needs to do more foreign surveillance. And the entire US has to use ’enhanced interrogation’. And those criminal combatant goatherds must all be droned before they can march into the US and impose Sharia Law. And no one deserves a trial, our leaders already know who’s guilty and must proceed directly to execution without wasting any money on useless formalities now that the US is broke because of those enemy combatants (many of whom are US citizens) against whom the US is engaged in total war.

    I don’t know why you call it Obama’s America, good old George Bush was the architect. You do really have to ask yourself the question of how would you go about finding the needle in the haystack?

    I’m disappointed Obama hasn’t reined this in, but it’s definitely something he was handed when he came to office. There has doubtless been surveillance for a while, despite what I used to believe, but the most intrusive and widespread snooping started as a result of that huge terrorist disaster that Bush allowed to happen, and which was his excuse for pushing aggressive spying on Americans.

    Its just John Owen Brennan trying to erase some of his earlier work with the Bush admin..
    .
    On the other hand, Obama is pretty close to the NSA, he is not putting up a lot of objections, it seems. After all, he needs their intel to send out his killer drones.

    “Obama expanded the scope…”
    “Obama is exactly like Bush…”
    “where is your proof?”
    “Where is your link?”
    ..
    Your last two questions are silly coming from you, why not answer them?
    Few others post their contradicting comments all in a row like you do. Two statements that are not supported followed by derision for folks that make unsupported statements.

    Sheesh.

    “Obama is exactly like Bush.”

    Not true. Mr. Obama can form a complete sentence without help. You may not like the content, but he is nowhere near the simpleton that is George Walker Bush.

    But back to the subject (the ’toon): Well stated, Mr. Morin. A great reference to Casablanca, with the same understated irony.

    The spying is not shocking, the targets are.
