as our old pal "colombo" from the 1970s TV cop show would say--
" this bugs me"--
the NSA has a massive electronic spy system where it is going through every bodys emails, following them around on the internet, listening in on all phone calls , watching every bodys banking transactions, and overseas their supposedly even more intrusive.
with drone overflights actual electronic tapping of LOCs and so on.
NSA/government is spending hundreds of millions of dollars monthly , billions and billions yearly--
and violating out right to privacy and the constitution for NOTHING!
the big debate so far is "has the NSA spy program led to even actual ONE terrorist?"
now we got an even bigger cia/NSA/ intel epic fail---
somehow the president was FOOLED (according to him) into giving aid to syria , this aid turns up in the hands of ISIS which is just a new label for al-quaida.
ISIS takes all this AID from the US builds up an ARMY of support and invades iraq and has just about too take over the place-- takes a couple years time to ramp up for this --so it ain;'t like there was no time for the NSA to discover this--
all these tens of thousands of al-quaida types jabbering on cells --yet the NSA no clue??? if ther BS is working like they say--
over a couple years they should have intercepted millions of actual al-quaida communications in emails and phone calls during this period.
BUT how could all the massive NSA/CIA/FBI spy machine that is tapping into every phone on earth NOT get a hint that something big was brewing?
miss an entire army of al-quaida big enough to take over an entire country?
there is only two possible answers for this.
#1 the entire spy program is a scam and the whitehouse is utterly incompetent and irresponsible.
#2 the white house KNEW about the impending ISIS take over and sided with al-quaida. in this case choosing to do nothing is the same as siding with al-quaida.
personally i don't see how such incompetent leadership can be allowed to remain in the white house.
and if the answer is #2 ???
this bugs me!
