(CNN) - A day before the House is expected to vote on restrictions to the National Security Agency's controversial phone surveillance program, the director of national intelligence told CNN Tuesday he would be "very concerned" if the measure were to pass.
James Clapper commented briefly as he left a classified hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which also is exploring changes to the program in the wake of leaks by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
James Clapper should be "very concerned" about all the transgressions and incompetence displayed by government before first jumping on a populace reluctant in giving up civil liberties. How about how the legislature (congress) no longer legislating, just sitting back and letting the judicial and executive branches "make" all the laws.
It limits what he thinks he can do and what he can gather.
I am tired of the American people being the enemy of Government.
Well now the American people do not want to have our every move monitored without cause either. If there is cause get a warrent. That is our Constitution and it gives us this right. Who we talk to and for how long is no ones business. We need to get rid of this program. Iyt is a black eye on our country!
New measures are passed we get attacked again whether here at home or on foreign soil.
Once it happens in this age of facebook and twitter those folks can tell us exactly who was saying what and when.
