CIA Director Decries 'Hand-Wringing' Over Surveillance of Americans

The laughingstock of the intelligence community, John Brennan, says the recent attacks by Muslims in Paris only go to show the need for — you guessed it — domestic surveillance of Americans at home:

The chief of the Central Intelligence Agency said Monday that the terrorist attacks in Paris last week highlight the need for domestic surveillance programs like the controversial operation run by the National Security Agency. After speaking at a research group in Washington Monday, CIA director John Brennan said the government has done a lot of “hand-wringing” over domestic intelligence programs that only makes fighting terrorism more difficult.

“Because of a number of unauthorized disclosures and a lot of hand-wringing over the government’s role in the effort to try to uncover these terrorists, there have been some policy and legal and other actions that have been taken that make our ability collectively, internationally, to find these terrorists much more challenging,” he said. Brennan was answering a question about the attacks in Paris when he made the remarks.

Further, the CIA boss said he believes more attacks are in the planning stages — making effective surveillance critical.

This is how the Leviathan State metastisizes, one provocation at a time in order to get us to surrender our constitutional liberties. Of course, the one thing the Obama administration will not do is stifle the flow of middle-Eastern Muslims into the United States. Instead — as the foolish Bush administration did before it — it would rather treat all Americans as potential suspects rather than commit the sin of “discrimination” against sworn enemies of Christendom and the West.
