Senator but that isn't it it's this was small for for groups to be targeted by the IRS -- reporters be targeted by justice -- -- -- -- -- to be.
You know -- up for money to push and promote the health care law.
So everytime -- here and I don't relax and don't worry can happen does happen.
So but this is different I understand those are cases -- had people not operating with court orders making decisions gonna -- put it this bad kids -- -- it was part of one point 34 million Americans who have relatively the same access.
-- bush did today I guess given this clearances that are granted today.
Do the same thing.
Well obviously one of the results of this again and it was true with the WikiLeaks.
Is how do we -- a we utilized.
The best brains that most capable.
-- a computer.
Wizards and nerds to protect our country.
Without -- -- -- -- -- -- this is that this Internet access souvenirs with evident both cases these tests turned on the country and it didn't turn.
You don't share -- canned line don't of course you know -- -- business -- somebody else he was here the other day and he says Nowak has a hero the snow -- Europe you don't about it.
I don't I think he's a criminal and wanted well I know that he specifically violated.
Federal laws as Steve said and conservative spin object.
You know I I was thinking about it and he can he described himself as a person who committed an act of Civil Disobedience in a noble cause.
Not so long ago would you commit an act of Civil Disobedience you waited for the police are tourists you and that made your point this day -- To China of all places Hong Kong now -- -- sovereignty of China which is not exactly a free Internet.
But to turn it around all right I agree that point of view Senator Obama should make you -- -- run the other way down up what appears to tell what -- worry about.
Is -- -- history of our country's treatment of a whistle -- it's at least initially is never good.
They haven't held -- -- -- we -- with a guy yesterday was the first to blow the whistle on all the crazy stuff and foreign -- to get the SEC and and he paid dearly -- lost his job just won a suit to get the money back to job that.
You morals solvents and you know what offensive it was and it -- it.
But he had years to help deal with so maybe this kid is look at that sank by explain this anymore.
We're this -- -- that.
Yeah so he hears something different most of those whistle blowers.
Are not bound by laws that deal with classified material did you see something wrong something wasteful something fraudulent.
And they blow the whistle and they're heroes in my opinion right this guy is that a hero he was working on a classified program.
There was protecting our security.
And he went to a foreign country and and its divulging all this information and I repeat.
And I hope the government because -- materials shown you know the fact is that these programs these two programs city how loaded.
Have have prevented terrorist attacks again -- Here's your word that that's true because your word as Goldman but I will ask you this.
The president and his handling of these -- on does that level alone what do you think.
Look he came out no longer in the senate you -- get it always okay.
-- he gave a defense of this these NSA programs.
I don't think the president has been strong enough in response to the the terrorists.
Situation -- -- a senator he was against this sort of thing.
As president he endorsed.
Well maybe he's gotten older -- was her.
You know when you do when your president your commander in chief you're responsible for the security of the country.
By as a senator is young and clueless well he was younger and new -- for the yeah -- You know -- -- I wasn't any wasn't president wasn't commander in chief I mean I think when you're.
When it when you get those daily intelligence briefings which are used to get and he gets some at the highest level the president.
You see all the people plotting against -- trying to kill Americans.
And you've got these amazing technological capabilities.
-- just stop it hundreds and you got court rules to prevent it from violating people's privacy than that I think it's more of a plus in a negative.
The deal and those original one listener all of these crises together a lot of people are saying.
Did it whether the administration -- the president were to point was involved directly.
If his only -- -- he was out of looper didn't know there are a lot of things he was out of the loop on and didn't know about.
So that's hardly a ringing endorsement of his leadership style Joseph Lieberman says -- Well -- say you first of the presidency is so big so much comes to his desk.
He can't be on top of everything but.
He's the president and therefore he's accountable.
In one way or another for everything that happens in his administration.
And if he can rightfully say.
The largest I was doing this site and -- -- -- are working on this national problem.
I didn't know about this he's got to assume responsibility for him enact very aggressively to -- -- -- duly room severity and our neighborhood now great to be easier -- have a lower property -- not in this it and take a lot to do that welcome -- very soon be Joseph Lieberman.
Think and again we will we hope to be seeing a lot more aggressive to this agreement to say don't count -- a -- that.
