Four years too late?

Their talking points are about a foiled attack four years ago?

As a former co-worker used to say a lot, "What have you done for me lately?"

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Najibullah Zazi immigrated here in 1999

He made several trips back and forth to Pakistan, meeting with Al Qaeda, training with them, and giving them money and computers.

The idea that billions of US phone calls had to be captured in order to target this guy is an outright fabrication.

This does however point out the inconsistency between the idea that American citizens must sacrifice their freedoms under the 4th amendment for safety sake, while at the same time, the government does nothing to control immigration in a rational way.

I do believe that every so called example given of the efficacy of this spying involves an immigrant from the middle east. Why is uncontrolled immigration sacrosanct and the 4th amendment for current citizens negotiable?

Reading script still.

Remember when EVERY interviewer would ask RP the same question back during the campaign? It would be a question, like, "Did you write the racist comments, and if not, how could you let a racist comment be published under your name?"

They asked questions like that in consecutive interviews, as if they were reading the same card. And they were.

The question in this interview is, "Your father said that he's concerned that the American gov't might take out Snowden with a drone, what do you think about that?"

I would have preferred Rand to say, "Unfortunately, we have the NDAA which has legalized the killing of people the gov't say, without trial or jury, are terrorists. And such assassination HAVE ALREADY occurred. So the concern is obviously valid. Do I think that will happen with Snowden? No I don't, but it's legal to kill Americans without even arresting and charging them, something which I have fought vigorously against". The NDAA is yet ANOTHER example, like this spying, of how our federal gov't is running wild with utter contempt for the rule of law. And that is why I'm announcing here on your show that I'm running for POTUS, to fight for the rights of the American people."

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

They can't get him

Holy crap... every interview I see with Rand "news-people" are trying to make him look bad. He is unflappable and always comes away sounding reasonable. This guy is soooooooooooo good.

Great interview

Thanks for sharing the video.

Jesus is the saviour of the WHOLE WORLD, "As in Adam all die, so too in Christ ALL shall be made alive." (ICor.15:22) All means all. The pagan 'hell' of literal fire & eternal torment is a lie and is SPIRITUAL TERRORISM. http://www.hopebeyondhell.net
