'Alarming' memo on FISA abuses

GOP lawmakers demand that 'alarming' memo on FISA abuses be made public

Tyranny at work. Release the documents now.



Quote:
A four-page memo circulating in Congress that reveals alleged United States government surveillance abuses is being described by lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.

Speaking with Fox News, the lawmakers said they could not yet discuss the contents of the memo they reviewed on Thursday after it was released to members by the House Intelligence Committee. But they say the memo should be immediately made public.

“It is so alarming the American people have to see this,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said.

“It's troubling. It is shocking,” North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows said. “Part of me wishes that I didn't read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz said he believed people could lose their jobs after the memo is released.

“I believe the consequence of its release will be major changes in people currently working at the FBI and the Department of Justice,” he said, referencing DOJ officials Rod Rosenstein and Bruce Ohr.

“You think about, ‘is this happening in America or is this the KGB?’ That's how alarming it is,” Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry said.

The House Intelligence Committee on Thursday approved a motion by New York Rep. Pete King to release the memo on abuses of FISA, or the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, to all House members.

When the Patriot Act, THE largest restructuring and expansion of the federal government in decades, went from introduced in the house to signed by the president in just FOUR DAYS (talk about NOT reading it !!!!) many people were alarmed.

The conservatives all said, if you're not a terrorist, you have nothing to fear.

When Bush and Gonzales created a whole new category prisoners, enemy combatants, people being held with ABSOLUTELY ZERO DUE PROCESS, subject to neither US constitution nor Geneva conventions. Many people were very worried.

The conservatives all said, if you're not a terrorist, you have nothing to fear.

When they start snatching people off the streets of their villages and cities. Shipping them off to Guantanamo bay, or one the 14 other not so secrete CIA prisons. Many people expressed concerns.

The conservatives all said, if you're not a terrorist, you have nothing to fear.

Even when torture had been documented.

The conservatives all said, if you're not a terrorist, you have nothing to fear.

And when Bush started the warrantless wiretapping program. Many many many people were absolutely alarmed.

NOW YOU WANT TO BE SHOCKED AND ANGERED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT'S ACTIONS ?????
