The Clinton Administration installed the system.

It went operational 6 months before September 11, 2001.

Gore will never get it.

if there ever was an issue

that could bring all camps together this is it. i think ron paul would agree.

libertarians and some progressives are disturbed and acting, and speaking out.

believe me i generally cannot stand gore, but that doesn't mean he's not intelligent enough to see an over reach.

Good cop...bad cop.

Good cop...bad cop. They're all on the same team.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

even so

this was good news for greenwald, and i'll bet he appreciates it.

Finger in the wind

These people change their tune as the public finds out about their lies. I don't believe Al Gore suddenly "gets it". He's been a phony all along and that won't change.

true, true

but for now anyways, and it's all over a glen greenwald twitter page,

Nice!

Gore even quoted Ben Franklin:

"Benjamin Franklin famously wrote that those who would give up essential liberty to try to gain some temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
