SPYING: OBAMA KNEW. Obama knew CIA secretly monitored intelligence committee, senator claims. “Independent observers were unaware of a precedent for the CIA spying on the congressional committees established in the 1970s to check abuses by the intelligence agencies.” That’s because such spying is illegal. I wonder who else, inside and outside the various branches of government, was being similarly spied upon. And what was done with the information learned.

I’m sure Obama is using this capability.  I’m fairly certain both Bushes did as well.  (You don’t run the CIA without developing a “nose for the news.”  Not to mention Clinton.  And Nixon.  But J. Edgar Hoover really created the whole genre.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
