WASHINGTON — The Obama administration scrambled on Tuesday to slow Congressional opposition to the National Security Agency’s domestic spying operations as the House of Representatives prepared to vote on legislation that would block the agency’s collection of records about every phone call dialed or received inside the United States.
Gen. Keith B. Alexander, the N.S.A. director, held classified meetings with House members on Tuesday.

Senator Ron Wyden, a critic of some National Security Agency’s programs, spoke out about expansive surveillance Tuesday.
Gen. Keith B. Alexander, the N.S.A. director, met with Democrats and Republicans to lobby against a proposed amendment to a military appropriations bill that would stop the financing for its phone data collection program. The Republican-sponsored legislation is one of the first Congressional efforts to curb the agency’s domestic spying efforts since they were leaked by Edward J. Snowden, a former N.S.A. contractor.
Later on Tuesday, the White House issued a statement praising the idea of a debate about surveillance but denouncing “the current effort in the House to hastily dismantle” the call tracking program, urging lawmakers to vote down the legislation and instead conduct a “reasoned review of what tools can best secure the nation.”
“This blunt approach is not the product of an informed, open, or deliberative process,” the White House statement said.
Did you just see what I did?
Are you fucking kidding me?!
These fucking cocksuckers have the motherfucking BALLS to chastise Congress for trying to put the brakes on all this government spying that the weasel sonsabitches got OK'd by going to a SECRET COURT with NO PUBLIC ACCESS and NO OVERSIGHT, USING ONLY GOVERNMENT LAWYERS to CIRCUMVENT THE FOURTH AMENDMENT because THEY KNEW DAMN GOOD AND WELL WHAT THEY WERE DOING IS ILLEGAL!.
The mind boggles that these fucking assholes must think they are above the law and there is absolutely zero possibility that this might just go all the way to the Supreme Court and that there may be profound consequences down the road over this.
But what really frosts my balls is this one way bunch of pig fuckers trying to act all high and mighty and start trying to shame a bunch of shameless fucking politicians while completely ignoring their painfully obvious hypocrisy.
Jesus H. Fucking Christ these people are beyond the pale.
