What's Good for the Goose...
Hearing the members of the Senate Intelligence Committee complain that the CIA spied on their computer use has gotten me a little bit perturbed. Where was your outrage when the CIA and NSA were spying on every American living in this century? Where was your outrage when our spy agency was bugging the offices of our closest allies? Where was your outrage when it came to light that you approved these measures?
You attacked Mr. Snowden for making this information available to all of us. You make him an enemy of the State forced to seek sanctuary from our enemies. You demonize him on the morning news shows and act as if his taking a stand to uphold his oath to defend the Constitution from Domestic threats is wrong. You were the threat he was referring to, your lazy acceptance of justifications for the shredding of the 4th Amendment and cataloging of data that the government has no right to.
And now you want to cry foul when the CIA does exactly what you told them they had every right to do? I think not. Accept your roles in this situation. You handed the keys to these people, don't get pissed off when they use them to look through your dirt laundry.
