CIA head insists on spying on Americans
May 31, 2015
The head of the Central Intelligence Agency has insisted that the United States should continue snooping on telephone conversations of millions of Americans in order to stop terrorist attacks.
In an interview with CBS News on Sunday, John Brennan also warned that stopping the National Security Agency's spying programs could increase attacks in the country.
"Because if you look at the horrific terrorist attacks and violence being perpetrated around the globe, we need to keep our country safe, and our oceans are not keeping us safe the way they did century ago," Brennan said.
CIA head insists on spying on Americans. He also noted that terror networks like ISIL [Created by CIA related networks, think tanks and foundations.] are following the developments very carefully and they are "looking for the seams to operate."
"The tools that the government has used over the last dozen year to keep this country safe are integral to making sure were able to stop terrorist attacks," he said.
The US Senate should act on USA Patriot Act that allows the NSA to collect any telephone and business records relevant to a counterterrorism investigation. The Patriot Act came following the 9/11 attacks in the United States.
The Patriot Act is set to expire at midnight Sunday and the Senate is scheduled to hold a rare session on Sunday to discuss it.
That the CIA wants to continue spying on Americans has more to do with keeping track of American dissidents more than tracking terrorists, and no better example of that is this American from Texas who is in Ukraine defending the people of Horlivka, Ukraine where shelling took place on two homes in which several family members were killed and others severely wounded in this indiscriminate attack. This American dissident is demonstrating what Americans are going to have to do besides "clicking like on Facebook." Is the CIA more fearful of a coming backlash against the American government for sponsoring these terrorist attacks on Ukrainians by the "Nazis in Kiev", or the ostensible American government since most of it has been privatized?
