The NSA Spying and Lying Does Relate to 9/11

Earlier this month, National Security Agency (NSA) head Keith Alexander admitted that he had lied to the U.S. Congress and the American people in an attempt to justify the NSA’s growing surveillance of U.S. citizens.[1]

In June, while attempting to defend the secret NSA programs revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden, Alexander claimed that over 50 terrorist plots had been thwarted though collection of the phone and internet records of American citizens. Alexander said that his agency had provided Congress with 54 specific cases in which the programs helped disrupt terror plots in the U.S. and around the world.[2]

Just a few weeks before the “54 plots” claim, Alexander had testified to the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee that NSA spying on American citizens had played a critical role in thwarting “dozens” of terrorist attacks.[3] Alexander spent the next three months declaring that the NSA’s spying on Americans was preventing terrorism and another 9/11.

None of that was true as we found out a few weeks ago. Of the 54 alleged plots, only one or two were identified as a result of bulk phone record collection, according to Alexander’s most recent comments. That number has since been whittled down to just one incident that wasn’t a terrorist plot at all but was a case of a cab driver sending cash to an alleged terrorist organization.[4] Bottom line ― the NSA spying on Americans has not stopped any terrorist plots, let alone dozens or 54.

Alexander’s lies followed closely after National Intelligence Director James Clapper’s lie, or as he called it ― his “least most untruthful statement” ― that the NSA was not even collecting information on large number of Americans citizens. In March, Clapper appeared before Congress and was asked “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?” Clapper replied, “No, sir.” Clapper’s blatant lie was premeditated. Senator Ron Wyden’s office had sent him the question the day before the hearing.[5]

“least most untruthful statement”

So then, everything else is mostly lying, ok, thanks, that would explain things

Good point

Perhaps in the cause of "national security" we should have National Intelligence Director James Clapper land in GITMO? ~ he is saying things 'lesser humans' got branded.

the pants are on the fires. Its hard waking people up to the truth, even when its blatantly obvious.

You still do not understand (85% who did not vote for Ron Paul in the primaries +... )

If the truth about 9/11 was released Dr. Ron Paul would have won all states.

Thank you Scawarren

Truth has a tendency to reveal itself over time.

I would say this world deserves a new independent investigation into the events of 9/11.
I said this world.
Because almost everyone entire families are dying because of this lie OUTSIDE of the country this false flag even took place.

I estimate 300 million people already died because of the 9/11 Lie.

Correct me!
