Senator Rand Paul appeared on CNN’s Situation Room today. The host asked Senator Paul to respond to video of Dick Cheney who told Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace that the senator was “wrong” when he criticized the NSA’s surveillance programs.
“What I would ask is who did they fire after 9/11?” Paul asked. “Not one person was fired.”
“Do you remember the ’20th hijacker’?” he continued. “[Zacarias] Moussaoui, captured a month in advance? The FBI agent wrote 70 letters asking, ‘let’s look at this guy’s computer.’ In the FBI, they turned him down.”
“It wasn’t that they couldn’t get a warrant, nobody asked for a warrant,” Paul added. “To me, that was really, really bad intelligence – really bad police work – and, really, someone should have been removed from office for that.”
