Obama advisor claims the NSA spying program could have prevented 9/11

December 28, 2013

  Michael Morell, an advisor to Barack Obama, is not only defending the NSA spying program, he also feels it should be expanded because it could have prevented the 9/11 terrorist attack:

The National Security Agency’s phone-tracking program would likely have prevented the 9/11 jihadi atrocity and should be expanded, said one of President Barack Obama’s appointees to a five-man surveillance advisory group.

“Had the program been in place more than a decade ago, it would likely have prevented 9/11,” Michael Morell, a former deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency, wrote in a Dec. 27 Washington Post article.

  Of course the NSA spying program did not prevent the Fort Hood attack, nor the terrorist attack in Benghazi, and most recently it did not prevent the Boston Marathon bombing; I guess he forgot about these attacks, but then again CNN is now saying the mainstream media overreacted to the marathon bombing considering the relatively low amount of deaths in that attack, while lamenting the fact that the word “terrorism” was used to describe that attack in the first place, so I guess this attack was too “low scale” to be caught in the NSA spying program.

  Nice try, but I am not buying it. He that would give up a little liberty…..

    Not to worry. Once we all have cranial chips implanted they will lay off our phone calls and e-mails. Surely somewhere in the Queran Islamuc law forbids the implanting of chips in the faithful so little will change… : )

    Why would they prevent their own gov. branch staged bombing ‘test’ to begin with – this last patsy admits he hears voices in his head, why would he need a phone? Did the Fort Hood shooter make calls … or just receive them from the regime – what to do and when? They’re still using the 911 scam – false flag – to justify pushing their ‘one sick world’ agenda.

    These are the same idiots who think the TSA would have prevented 911. Wrong

    ‘Bulls**t’: It Was Posted on a Humor Site, But This Serious Takedown of the TSA Is Blistering

    The US bureaucracy is incapable of managing complex task. ICE, Boarder Patrol, DEA, IRS are replete with failures and inefficiency.

      But don’t worry, Obamacare will be there to make sure all the victims are treated.

    NSA has never gotten anything correct. In fact, President Clinton had been advised at some considerable time prior to the attacks of September 11, 2001, and chose not, to do anything. Laws involved are one thing and I respect that, but being vigilant and having a plan, for an event of an attack on United States soil, is an entirely different matter. Someone from the Bush Administration questioned the information and Bush said that he was given assurances from Clinton that it was only harmless talk. So, during an eight year period prior to 9/11, NSA remained, stupid. Former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell, is obviously a person serving his own agenda. Best is to defund NSA, and reduce funding by 70% to CIA. Both agencies are bloated and non-effective. Both agencies cause, more problems than they solve, and the problems they create are long term, in dictators, war, illegal arms trade, drugs, money laundering, etc.

    We have to know that before the 2014 election there probably will be another attack. Obama has to have the subject changed. Nice try by the NYTimes. Getting Hillary off the hook for Benghazi.

      There is no doubt in my mind that something will happen before the election to shift out focus, we must not let them get away with it. It looks like the NYT failed in their attempt, they are being roundly ridiculed for this piece.
