U.S. intel chief blasts leaks on web, phone use tracking


WASHINGTON Moving to tamp down a public uproar spurred by the disclosure of two secret surveillance programs, the nation's top intelligence official is declassifying key details about one of the programs while insisting the efforts to collect Americans' phone records and the U.S. internet use of foreign nationals overseas were legal, limited in scope and necessary to detect terrorist threats.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, in an unusual late-night statement Thursday, denounced the leaks of highly classified documents that revealed the programs and warned that America's security will suffer. He called the disclosure of a program that targets foreigners' Internet use "reprehensible," and said the leak of another program that lets the government collect Americans' phone records would change enemies' behavior and make it harder to understand their intentions.


"The unauthorized disclosure of a top secret U.S. court document threatens potentially long-lasting and irreversible harm to our ability to identify and respond to the many threats facing our nation," Clapper said of the phone-tracking program.

Absolute rubbish. Clapper wants us all to forget that people like Bin Laden were extremely wary of all forms of electronics, and reportedly wouldn't permit them anywhere near him. And that was WELL BEFORE any of these stories broke. It doesn't take a genius to know these things. Nor does it take a Jason Bourne or any similarly trained operative.

No Clapper, it's you and other SOBs like you that are the greatest threat to our nation.  GFY and die.
