Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I’m reminded of that saying as I contemplate the incredible number of times that the Obama Administration and its agencies have misled or outright lied to the American public and yet expected us to continue believing them. I wonder if they sit around in meetings saying, “Just tell them it was a mistake. U.S. citizens will believe anything.”
Earlier this year, it was learned that the National Security Agency (NSA) was recording every American’s phone conversations and storing their email communications. President Obama immediately expressed outrage…not at the fact that Americas were being spied on, but that the truth of this blatant overreach of government authority had been exposed.
When even the liberals got upset about this revelation, the NSA told us not to worry. They said that no one would ever listen to those conversations and or read those emails unless a person was suspected of being a terrorist. They assured us that their own privacy rules would prohibit any abuses.
Now, I don’t know how many people actually believed that – although it was probably a lot – but I sure as heck didn’t, and I doubt if you did either. Well, it didn’t take long to find out that it was another in a never ending series of lies. Last week it was revealed by the Washington Post that the NSA was breaking its own privacy rules “thousands of times” every year since being given new surveillance powers by Congress in 2008.
Yet still, the NSA is claiming that these thousands of cases of rule breaking were “mistakes.” Yeah, OK. I think we all know that the real “mistake” was giving the NSA this power in the first place.
A few months ago, the liberal New York Times wrote that the Obama Administration had lost all credibility. Do you agree with that statement?
