Senator Feinstein:

Am I mistaken?  Didn't you sign an oath upon taking office that you would uphold the Constitution of the United States? How then is it possible that you support the NSA spying on all American citizens (including you, I presume?) Would knowingly voting in the next election for someone who has committed a crime constitute a crime against the Constitution?

Below is a quote from

"High profile senators like Dianne Feinstein and Lindsey Graham who declared “the world is a battlefield” defended the program among others. Then, there was an another revelation. The NSA had set up a program called PRISM to collect data from tech giants, as the slides posted on the Washington Post show, and an article about how Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo, Skype, YouTube, and Apple are all participating in top secret spying program. Once again this was posted on The Guardian by Greenwald and Ewen MacAskill which noted that while the internet giants denied it, the NSA had

“obtained direct access to the systems of Google, Facebook, Apple and other US internet giants…[which is] part of a previously undisclosed program called Prism, which allows officials to collect material including search history, the content of emails, file transfers and live chats…[supposedly] run with the assistance of the companies…[and] was enabled by changes to US surveillance law…renewed under Obama in December 2012…The program facilitates extensive, in-depth surveillance on live communications and stored information. The law allows for the targeting of any customers of participating firms who live outside the US, or those Americans whose communications include people outside the US.”

I look forward to your considered response.

  1. I don't look forward to her considered response. I look forward to some competition when she next runs for the Senate.
