Could Data Collection Have Stopped 911

Could Data Collection Have Stopped 911?? The Tyrannical leaders In The White House Think So!! Many of President Obama's closest advisors have embraced a controversial assessment of one of the National Security Agency's major data collection programs — the belief that the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks could have been prevented had government then possessed the sort of vast trove of Americans' telephone records it holds now. As the president finalizes plans for a speech on Friday announcing his proposals to change intelligence operations and oversight, the widespread agreement at the most senior levels of the White House about the program's value appears to be driving policy. As a result, the administration seems likely to modify, but not stop, the gathering of billions of phone call logs. In recent White House meetings, Obama has accepted the "9/11" justification, aides say, expressing the belief that domestic phone records might have helped authorities identify some of the skyjackers. Obama believes the main problem with the program is one of perception: Many Americans don't trust the NSA, one of the most secretive of spy agencies, to respect civil liberties. In Friday's upcoming speech, the president is expected to propose steps that he hopes will make Americans more comfortable with the program, but not greatly reduce its scope as a counter-terrorism tool. One such change would be to shift the assembling and archiving of telephone "metadata" from NSA servers in Ft. Meade, Md., back to the telephone companies, or to a private third party. But aides say he is unlikely to end the program altogether. Under the current program, the government collects and stores metadata — numbers dialed and call times — involving virtually all telephone calls in or through the United States. The program does not collect the contents of conversations. "This capability was put in place after 9/11 for a good reason," said a senior administration official who asked "not to be identified" while discussing sensitive deliberations. He goes on to say, "The question we have to examine is whether the perception of privacy intrusion outweighs the operational value. www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-obama-nsa-20140113,0,2416490.story#axzz2qLndlfiV www.upi.com/Science_News/Technology/2014/01/13/Supporters-favor-idea-that-data-collection-could-have-prevented-911/UPI-88991389621785/?spt=rln&or=1 www.cnn.com/2013/12/30/opinion/bergen-nsa-surveillance-september-11/ Follow Me, Click On These Links: freedom4kaz plus.google.com/u/0/113543377275127919986/posts www.youtube.com/user/kazvswild plus.google.com/u/0/112884617482589244738/posts www.youtube.com/user/freedom4kaz2 plus.google.com/u/0/115399050446520377586/posts www.youtube.com/user/ChemtrailSunsets plus.google.com/u/0/106087252397523011722/posts Freespeak.net www.freespeak.net/profile-67/ Disaster Feeling www.disasterfeeling.net On Skype at freedom4kaz --------------------------------
