Up for Debate: NSA leaker to be charged

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 at 1:30am

Do you consider the NSA leak by Edward Snowden to be heroic or criminal? Are you more concerned that such classified leaks can occur or that government agencies have such great reach of power over your personal information?

Wrong again, yogi. This was his first Executive Order:

Executive Order -- Authorizing the Implementation of Certain Sanctions Set Forth in the Iran Freedom and Counter-Proliferation Act of 2012 and Additional Sanctions with Respect To Iran

You speak of proof; how about proving me to be wrong. At least once. All you seem to be able to do is accuse, even though you can't prove.

Executive Order 13233[1] limited access to the records of former United States Presidents. It was drafted by then White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales and issued by George W. Bush on November 1, 2001. Section 13 of Order 13233 revoked Executive Order 12667 which was issued by Ronald Reagan on January 18, 1989.

The Order was partially struck down in October 2007, and Barack Obama completely revoked it by Executive Order 13489[2] on January 21, 2009, his first full day in office. However, as long as no bill is passed by Congress with regard to this issue, any future president is free to issue yet another order to take the place of the revoked order 13233, just as Order 13233 revoked Order 12667.

yogi - You don't have sense enough to know when you are shown absolute proof that you are wrong. Come back when you get some brains, oh you are getting too old for that. Too bad! smirk

So, Obama revoked the order that limited access to records of former U.S. Presidents. That is totally the opposite of what you are saying, yogi.

What I am saying, B2, is your man Barry doesn't want anyone to see his papers. Why? Because he knows it will expose him on his schools and his citizenship.

Look into Bill Ayres parents. I read where they sponsored a foreign student named Barack Hussein Obama. The picture I saw sure looked like Barry.

yogi, you were wrong about the Executive Order. He did NOTHING to block access to his records! What a dolt. Do you not comprehend anything you read?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/11/13 at 3:27

yogi, you get duped by those damn conspiracy sites every time! LOL

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/11/13 at 3:29

yogi - admit you were wrong about the Executive Order so we can put that lie to rest. OK?

By: bfra on 6/11/13 at 3:29

Blanket - He is too stupid to comprehend anything you post.

It's time for the Yogi's younguns to call for an intervention....

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/11/13 at 3:34

He'll wait a couple weeks then bring the Executive Order thing up again and say it was never disproven to him. Idiot.

yogi, shouldn't you be writing a letter to John Boehner instead of screwing around on here?

Prove it.....

Disprove it . . . .

John Boehner isn't my representative, B2. I write my district's representative when I have a reason. Who do you write to, Boehner?

And by the way, B2, you seem to have all of the answers; can you explain why the news media can, and has, issued so much personal information about that young 'traitor' for furnishing that information about the phone thefts in only two days but haven't been able to give any information about the man going by the name Barack Obama for the past 6 years... even his legal name?

Yogi, Blanket is smarter than anyone on the planet and tells us that daily.

Wonder where the guy who outed the spying is now? They said he left Hong Kong hotel. He says he'll never be seen by his family again. I bet the White House, aka the spy center, is spending a ton of tax dollars looking for him. And the white house is like someone with a nail in their foot, nailed to the floor, just spinning and spinning around.

Funny how the Boy P0otentate knows nothing at all about the long string of felonies his regime has committed, but will categorically tell us "No one is listening to your phone calls". I guess there are enough Americans with any intelligence to be insulted.
