And who can forget this wonderful Wikileaks story....

"How Hillary Clinton ordered U.S. diplomats to spy on UN leaders"
29 November 2010

"Hill ary Clinton ordered American officials to spy on high ranking UN diplomats, including British representatives.

Top secret cables revealed that Mrs Clinton, the Secretary of State, even ordered diplomats to obtain DNA data – including iris scans and fingerprints - as well as credit card and frequent flier numbers.

"The request could break international law and threatens to derail any trust between the U.S. and other powerful nations."

They are still spying on their own people.

'Of course' they have stopped, and we 'of course' believe everything that comes out of the Whitehouse Press Office, I DON'T THINK SO!!!
Obummer has absolutely no credibility 0, just lies and
spin, he deserves no more respect than a cheap snake oil salesman in an expensive suit, for that is what he is, no integrity ,honesty , and certainly no consciousness.

By now, Obama may have turned those nukes over to his good friends in Al Qaeda, and they could be anywhere just waiting for his orders to do another false flag attack and blame it on whomever he wants.

Davis, what about the missing nukes? Were they stolen or just misplaced? How many nukes went missing?

I heard about this as well. A few nuclear warheads were secretly moved from an Air Force base in Texas towards the East Coast. At the same time Sen. Graham said that Charleston might be nuked if we did not attack Syria. Then some top military heads were fired. No one seems to know where the nukes are now. Evidently they are Obama's private weapons. If a US city is nuked, suspect him.

I need a higher class of liars to laugh at !


Davis-Guess Wendy 30.10.2013 12:01

No, Mark, I am talking about the Sept 3rd announcement by Sen. Graham from an AFB and headed toward Charleston of all places. Shortly thereafter, a couple of high level military officers were relieved of their duty.

You just can't make this stuff up. Or can you...sounds like a script of a movie that will require a high profile leading man to make money at the box office, a soundtrack that make teen girls cry, and on air ad time.

You can tell when Obama is lying when his lips move. He has lied about everything from his birth certificate and campaign promises to Benghazi and Obamacare. Who in their right mind would believe him when he says he will stop spying on the UN?

smoke, mirrors and patriotic bunnies poping out all over..
intergovermenta l spying and globaly competing intelligence agencies is not the issue here, nor the reason for which snowden became a wistleblower
stay focused now..

What is the point of the NSA, DHS, FBI, CIA if these same groups have lost a nuclear weapons which apparently have become untraceable.

Honestly, these agencies scare me to death. After 50 years of walking around this country, the only terrorizing component has become the govt and their lobby groups.

AIPAC should be presented as the real power behind the spy ring gone global. Israel has a gun to the head of the entire planet.

You're naive if you believe the UN didn't know anything about it. Course they did. This was an effort to make the globalists at the UN look like the good guys, as one globalist entity (US) spies on another (UN).


Dan Hughes 30.10.2013 06:58

Connie needs to read a bit about history as she obviously has no knowledge of why UN came about


Dan Hughes 30.10.2013 03:30

While you are going on daily about NSA did you know that Russia provided all world leaders at G20 conference with chargers and memory sticks?It appears that German intelligence service have found out that it was done to collect info on world leaders.Can you say something about it ?
