Time for Lynn to transition into the private sector.
Anyone who voted to usurp the Constitution is a traitor, and we now know what Westmoreland really is.
We're just heading for a fall!!!
Are you aware that there are NO names or addresses in the data collected? Actual conversations are NOT collected. If, at some future time, there is reason to suspect a terrorist activity connection concerning a particular phone number, then the FBI gets involved to determine name & address . Why would you have a problem with that?
That trash sold us out years ago. Lyn Westmoreland is as useless as tits on a boar hog. His ilk and contributions to the merger of the Democrat and Republican party is what drove this productive American out of the party.
but also Hank Johnson, Chris VanHollen and Nancy Pelosi?
Time for reevaluation there.
I don't normally wave the flag for Westmoreland but I agree with that vote--I wouldn't have voted 'Yea' for the Amash Amendment either! But then I understand NSA & the Intelligence business because I was on the inside for 42 yrs! What NSA did had approval of all 3 Branches of our Govt. Check Amash out--he's kind of a strange duck with an (R) behind his name. BTW, anybody actually READ the Amendment? I did--it proposed severely restricting and in some cases eliminating NSA's authority to collect. And if things happened to go South and we get attacked, I bet Amash would be out in front screaming 'Intelligence Failure'.
I respect your 42 years of inside knowledge. Obviously I and others are not Westmoreland fans - but it looks like he did his homework here -rather than just following the 'party line'. I only had a few years of 'insidership' , and nothing compared to your expertise, but please, please those who are critics of Westmoreland - don't play with our intelligence organizations when it comes to homeland security. Thanks for sharing.
