SORRY FOLKS, WE ARE HAVING SOME SITE ISSUES. IF YOU ARRIVED FROM THE HOME PAGE, iroots.org, YOU SHOULD BE SEEING THIS POST ON THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF A U.S. ENFORCED NO-FLY ZONE OVER SYRIA. PLEASE CHECK IT OUT:
Gen. Alexander is the same man who testified last March…
Rep. Johnson: Does the NSA intercept Americans’ cell phone conversations?
General Alexander: No.
What judicial consent is required for NSA to intercept communications and information involving American citizens?
Within the United States, that would be the FBI lead. If it were a foreign actor in the United States, the FBI would still have to lead. It could work that with NSA or other intelligence agencies as authorized. But to conduct that kind of collection in the United States it would have to go through a court order, and the court would have to authorize it. We’re not authorized to do it, nor do we do it.
WILL HE BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE?
ACTIVISM ALERT: Contact members of the Senate Appropriations Committee to demand they hold the NSA accountable today!
