Political Rant: NSA Listening to Personal, Private American Phone Calls

Good Morning Bloggers - ABC News is reporting on two whistleblowers who say that US intelligence officers are getting their kicks listening to Americans phoning home from overseas.

Despite legal requirements and pledges by Bush and intelligence officials, hundreds of US citizens overseas have been eavesdropped on as they called friends and family back home. Two former military intercept operators who worked at the National Security Agency (NSA) in Fort Gordon, Georgia, have come forward to report incredible news about how intelligence officers frequently listen in on very personal and private phone calls. Read the whole story here.

Once again we have an example of how the Bush Administration and the Republicans have broken our trust and done the dirty deeds we suspect they do. Who knows how deep the rabbit hole goes? What if they're listening in on Barack's campaign conversations? What if they're listening in on Democratic candidates across the country? The whole thing scares the hell out of me. I get tired of saying it, but Americans need to WAKE UP and vote them OUT OF POWER!
