Good morning thank you very much and glad to signals could reach down here to my bunker.
And why are you and I don't -- did you -- -- later.
You know what it's it's a beautiful it's a beautiful state.
You know I love the fission and rapid climb in and it to -- the right move you know I I mean I'm that the united it's easy to travel from Idaho to get to other places -- -- -- to get -- for business.
But it does -- sort of quality of life issues I was kind of tired of taking that commuting train in New York City.
-- -- compound out there with the I didn't.
I'd still but you can even find it on Google Maps yeah and I completely secret of -- out went nights it think it's a gorgeous state anybody who has been out there should -- get out here are some of the best buy fishing and and now rafting in the world.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I have moved above my vision is -- gonna come out like -- -- found Osama bin Laden and the muscle pull little -- thousands -- not the primary -- -- -- itself so I did I've I've I've.
I am but only with one wife -- they've.
-- -- sun had a saved.
Scandal under secretary Colin although.
O'Reilly and James Carville and I don't.
A disagreement on some of all the we're good Colorado scandal morning America good.
Well I I think it's a product of of what we've been.
Doing for the past decade you remember right after 9/11.
You know the big cry from congress from the general public to the Intel community and law enforcement was you've got to -- you got to play well with -- each other.
You know enough of this you know keeping your information come compartmentalized well.
-- no surprise if you if you switch from from protecting your classified information and compartmentalizing.
So you have a need to know and in limited access to a share system.
Where what you want to do is create large pots of information so that everybody can access it while.
You know this this is the danger that you run.
You know the occasional -- functional individual like Snowden -- I had -- seem to have access that that is well beyond his his.
Seniority or -- position within the community.
But I covers more action than just they're all inaugural ball drew what do you think it's appropriate for -- For the NSA terrain.
Are gathered didn't massive amounts of his phone calls from from -- tremendous number of people.
Well from a -- from an operational point of you know.
You know I don't I don't I don't have a problem I think they need to have investigative ability -- on the anybody's arguing with back.
That and it's focused targeted investigations.
You know we need to have the ability to reach -- -- phone records conversations emails whatever may -- And my problem is from an operational perspective even -- relatively small amounts of data.
Sifting through that in almost real time to collect operational more actionable leads.
To prevent and disrupt -- minimize something is difficult enough but when you're talking about the vast amount of information that we seem to be focused on collecting now frankly.
I don't know what we're doing with it other than shoving in the basement over NSA and hoping to get to it someday because I -- despite what the technology companies say.
I still think we've got the ability to sift through that quantity of information.
In a meaningful operational sort of way.
Remember -- more appropriate girl.
But there were gathered information from people who -- suspected of doing something rather than from like me and pension problem -- -- and end it can't hold people are not a -- Well certainly a lot of Obama Connell well -- and I think you know that is what it what they're talking about assists this sort of this new watchword became out of -- watch races.
-- predictive modeling.
And so the idea being to collect this vast amount of information.
And everybody in the country back to tried of right on every body and you look at all -- these sort of met -- patterns of communication.
And trying to get out ahead of the curve to predict where you're going to have a problem -- I got an issue -- that I did no doubt about it I'm on the small government guy.
And in Idaho so you know I think that we've got to we've got an issue -- got a real problem now that's not to condone in any way.
What this -- Snowdon has done or anybody like him I and I think he needs to be behind bars frankly for life and -- I'm I'm saddened I'm kind of sickened by this talk about well is he your hero or is -- a whistle blower well he's a -- he signed documents to keep his yap shut.
He's dysfunctional he's nobody's idea -- -- stories armies.
Not even lets -- -- minions.
-- a perfect example of sort of failing up.
But he needs to be behind bars for what he's done.
Well -- Lou and -- America's civil liberties urine and pursuing now the our government.
For what they describe a system dragnet collection of photo -- so what -- I'm I'm trying to get ahead of hitters there's that there are many different -- as unconstitutional.
For the NSA to.
To -- -- to -- all of his phone calls from everybody.
Yeah I don't think there's I mean I dignity they really dig into that -- certainly not old lawyer.
But I believe that phone records as opposed to phone conversations.
Have been shown in previous court case is not to be protected by the Fourth Amendment as it -- -- held by third parties.
-- -- -- expectation if I get my phone bill and and it says I've called Brazil seventeen times last month I pick up the phone I call somebody.
And wherever it may be here in the states or to call senator and Dublin or Bangladesh.
And my expectation is that you know some third party already have this information so in that sense.
Yeah I don't think it's it's it's if it's necessarily a constitutional issue my problem what it is just from an operational investigative -- you.
I don't think it's being used in any meaningful way and I and I worry about.
The collection of that quantity.
And then the idea of where's it gonna go from there and at what point they think well you know this is this is pretty good corporate it period predictive modeling for terrorism and it will use it for something else that we use it for.
People who don't pay their taxes.
And and how far down the road does this -- so I think that conversation is very important.
But I think that the idea of transparency.
And you know discussing these things it shouldn't be prompted by people who break the covenant.
Two protect the classified information that they have access to.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- The band doesn't nonsense.
And now the -- -- candles burned for lack of a better word over a -- State Department.
As well as they outrages IRS -- -- No explicit government -- controlled moment.
What does -- and I'm glad glad you -- brought up and guys Shiite I had any time you know there's an opportunity to beat that round.
I'm I'm all for it clearly it it doesn't make any difference -- it's not considered an issue as far as the president.
And goes and he named Susan Rice.
As -- new national security advisor with him I think you know kind of given us high hard one so I think he's is he signaling that he just doesn't care about that.
And I still don't understand how.
It got to the point where.
Not at least trying to save lives.
Isn't considered disgraceful.
And possibly even criminal.
-- -- maneuvers do you have planned for today and I don't know that are to come down.
Well the man actually -- You have to -- exactly -- I got three little boys and they just six after we finished walking the perimeter.
Did that will reset the will reset the minds and I don't like this in flight missions are.
Overdo it weren't fortunate incursion Covert operations and maybe CIA knows we're Snowdon has follow.
He'll be back here in the states you know showcase drop that has -- -- Brinker International moratorium thank you all the blogs -- --
