Many Senators More Concerned w/ NSA Spying on Americans Than Bombs Getting Past TSA Agents

leave a comment »

Editor: These two articles clearly prove that the NSA Big Brother surveillance program against every American is not intended to find terrorists but to sift through every American phone call and text looking for citizens deemed enemies of the state. If our government were really concerned about terrorists, then TSA agents would have not failed to detect bombs and other weapons 95% of the time. Come on, fellow Americans, it’s time to wake up…

NSA Domestic Surveillance Program Expires After Senate Fails to Reach Deal – ABC News

The NSA started the shutdown process at 4 p.m. Sunday. It will take an entire day to reboot the system, if Congress passes legislation reforming the metadata collection program.

Senators returned to Capitol Hill Sunday afternoon, just hours before key provisions of the Patriot Act, including the NSA’s controversial bulk collection of American’s phone records, were set to expire.

The Senate cleared a key procedural hurdle on the House-passed USA Freedom Act with a vote of 77 to 17. But objections by Paul, R-Kentucky, delayed further votes on the measure.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell originally opposed the House-passed USA Freedom Act, but Sunday, he said it was the only option.

EXCLUSIVE: Undercover DHS Tests Find Security Failures at US Airports

An internal investigation of the Transportation Security Administration revealed security failures at dozens of the nation’s busiest airports, where undercover investigators were able to smuggle mock explosives or banned weapons through checkpoints in 95 percent of trials, ABC News has learned.

The series of tests were conducted by Homeland Security Red Teams who pose as passengers, setting out to beat the system.

According to officials briefed on the results of a recent Homeland Security Inspector General’s report, TSA agents failed 67 out of 70 tests, with Red Team members repeatedly able to get potential weapons through checkpoints.

House reaches deal on bill to end NSA phone collection | Fox News

leave a comment »

House leaders have reached a bipartisan compromise on a bill that would end the National Security Agency’s controversial collection of American phone records, but the measure faces an uncertain future in the Senate.

The House Judiciary Committee on Thursday overwhelmingly passed the latest version of a bill known as the USA Freedom Act by a bipartisan vote of 25 to 2. The measure seeks to codify President Barack Obama’s proposal to end the NSA’s collection of domestic calling records. It would allow the agency to request certain records held by the telephone companies under a court order in terrorism investigations.

The authority to collect those records and other related surveillance provisions of the Patriot Act will expire June 1 unless Congress passes a law reauthorizing it. The House bill would do that, with changes. Senate leaders have introduced a bill that would reauthorize the provisions with no changes, allowing the NSA to continue collecting phone records.
