Comments on: Obama’s legacy of secrecy http://blogs.reuters.com/david-rohde/2013/02/08/brennan-perpetuates-obamas-legacy-of-secrecy/ Fri, 31 Jul 2015 03:37:49 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: susette http://blogs.reuters.com/david-rohde/2013/02/08/brennan-perpetuates-obamas-legacy-of-secrecy/#comment-2538 Mon, 18 Feb 2013 12:30:18 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/david-rohde/?p=1499#comment-2538 I guess the secrecy issue is all a part of the war on terror that started during Reagan’s era. Terrorists have not gone away, and our own citizens now take part every day in organized terror acts. So I guess it’s all just history.

The new body would be similar to the federal court that currently reviews government requests to wiretap citizens.”

This is a step forward? Yes, I guess trying to legitimize the state’s right to execute U.S. citizen without at least giving them the opportunity to defend themselves from their accusations, it is a step forward… I just don’t think you and I share the same opinion which way we’re heading. But I guess its more important that we move forward not backwards… I guess that’s one promise we can count on Obama keeping. :)

What a laugh. These countries, the few left with any real, effective government, either turn a blind eye or outright condone the activities of militant islamists. The president’s “license to kill” was written by the radical islamists when they decided to attack the World Trade Center and the pentagon. We need more drone attacks until not one of them is left standing.

Re: secrecy… so Obama had to negotiate first and get permission from Pakistan, which was harboring Bin Laden for years, in order to kill him?..
Don’t be ridiculous people.

This President is a master of preaching one thing to the public and then doing the exact opposite. The media has failed to expose his overt lying and misrepresentation of the facts. The media has defended his tactic of supporting divisiveness both within the citizenry and in Congress.

Very few, unlike Mr. Rohde, raise the question of what is actually happening within the White House. It will take 20 years, if not 50, to unscrew the damage this President has done to this country. I surely hope all the young people who voted for him understand that they will pay a very significant price for the opportunities lost–as you (collectively) will be the first generation who will not ascend to a lifestyle better than that of your parents. And, more government in your lives will not translate to greater prosperity, only more involvement in your daily lives. You are getting the exact government you elect.

We’ve got a court of summary justice just ready and waiting for you.

LOL
Congress (and some members of the media) has been trying to give terrorists top secret infomration through these circus hearings for decades so they could attack the US again, give an excuse to take away all of our Constituional rights, and make big news stories $$$$.
We do not need to be helping terrorists attack and kill Americans.
It is patriotic to not help the enemy and not give out top secret information, give those Obama people medals.

This worthless mass-murdering BABOON should be tried for war crimes and SHOT.
