NSA fact sheet pulled after being challenged by Sen. Mark Udall

<snip>

NSA's two-page fact sheet about the 702 program, which gives the agency permission to collect foreigners' phone and e-mail records, had been circulated to members of Congress and posted on its website.

Udall and Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon sent Alexander a letter Monday, obtained by The Denver Post, accusing the agency of "significant" errors in the fact sheet that portrayed Americans' privacy rights as stronger than they actually are.

The NSA took down the fact sheets from its website Tuesday.

Udall and Wyden were not able to describe what about the program's description was inaccurate, saying that would divulge classified information

1. Note to NSA - like anyone is going trust anything that you say.

Please - try not to embarrass yourselves (and your country) by trying to portray yourselves as helpful nanny state protectors any further.

Your a bunch of black ops fucking spy's. Not much you can do to sugar coat it.

2. they're professional spies, liars, manipulators and worse. but we're supposed to believe them.

 

and they're privatized, which is even worse, because who knows where their real loyalties actually lie.

3. I know. A less than zero transparency known to be highly secretive

intelligence organization trying to cover their tracks. And we are supposed to look at a cover up document and swallow it hook line and sinker?

How stupid do they think the sheeple have become?

All I can think is that it a diversion.

5. Agree completely, except

 

that's not a "nanny" state program, it's a "daddy" state.

6. Maybe even a frankenstate. In any case it's a "we know whats best for you even if it's not" state.

8. Frankenstate is better.

 

"Nanny state" is a RW smear about safety nets. I won't use their framing.

4. The days of being held accountable by Congress...

... passed away many years ago. "Fact sheet". Wonder who came up with that "bright" idea? There's not enough info there to even make an article. There's no news. Chief snoop supposedly met with a couple Senators and they discussed a "fact sheet," which they can't tell us about. Duh...

Here's something you can read up on. Tells you what the Military/Intel Industrial Complex is really doing:

Glad that Udall and Wyden are on it.
