Senator Diane Feinstein (Dem. CA) supports and defends spying on the American people by the National Security Agency (NSA).
Below, you’ll see a 37-second video of Senator Feinstein presenting a recently “declassified chart” (right) that lists 54 terrorists “events” that have been stopped by means of the spying conducted by the National Security Agency.
Of these 54 terrorist “events,” 13 were in the “Homeland,” 25 in Europe, 5 in Africa, and 11 in Asia.
It’s interesting that of the 54 events thwarted by the National Security Agency, 41 of them (76%) occurred in Europe, Asia and Africa and therefore outside of our “Nation”. My first thoughts are to wonder 1) Why our National Security Agency stops three times as many terrorist events from occurring outside of our “nation” as they do within our “nation”; and 2) Why the NSA should be justified in spying on Americans if 76% of the terrorist events which the NSA stops occur in foreign countries.
Why not let the foreign countries take care of their own terrorist events? Why must the US be the world’s policeman?
