The NSA’s “Lone Wolf” Justification for Mass Spying Is B.S.

The NSA’s main justification for Constitution-shredding mass surveillance on all Americans is 9/11.

In reality:


* Top security experts say that mass spying interferes with U.S. counter-terror efforts (more here and here)

* American presidents agree

* The chairs of the 9/11 Commission say that the spying has gone way too far (and that the Director of National Intelligence should be prosecuted for lying about the spying program)

* Top officials say that the claim that the government could only have stopped the attacks if it had been able to spy on Americans is wholly false

* The NSA was already conducting mass surveillance prior to 9/11

The former Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, outside adviser to the CIA, and Co-Chair of the congressional investigation into 9/11 – Bob Graham – says:
I have personally talked to the other cochair of the Congressional Joint Inquiry, a man who was a very distinguished congressman and, later, director of the CIA [Porter Goss], I have talked to the two chairs of the … 9/11 Commission, asking them, what do you think were the prospects of these 19 people being able to plan, practice, and execute the complicated plot that was 9/11 without any external support?

All three of them used almost the same word: “Implausible”. That it is implausible that that could have been the case.

Yet that has now become the conventional wisdom to the aggressive exclusion of other alternatives.
