NSA Stymies Justice Dept. Spying Probe

WASHINGTON - The government has abruptly ended an inquiry into the warrantless eavesdropping program because the National Security Agency refused to grant Justice Department lawyers the necessary security clearance to probe the matter.

 

"We have been unable to make any meaningful progress in our investigation because OPR has been denied security clearances for access to information about the NSA program," OPR counsel H. Marshall Jarrett wrote to Hinchey. Hinchey?s office shared the letter with The Associated Press.

 

"Without these clearances, we cannot investigate this matter and therefore have closed our investigation," wrote Jarrett.

 

Roehrkasse noted the OPR?s mission is not to investigate possible wrongdoing in other agencies, but to determine if Justice Department lawyers violated any ethical rules. He declined to comment when asked if the end of the inquiry meant the agency believed its lawyers had handled the wiretapping matter ethically.

 

"This administration thinks they can just violate any law they want, and they?ve created a culture of fear to try to get away with that. It?s up to us to stand up to them," said Hinchey.

 

Bush?s decision to authorize the largest U.S. spy agency to monitor people inside the United States, without warrants, generated a host of questions about the program?s legal justification.

 

Separately, the Justice Department sought last month to dismiss a federal lawsuit accusing the telephone company AT&T of colluding with the Bush administration?s warrantless wiretapping program.

 

The lawsuit, brought by an Internet privacy group, does not name the government as a defendant, but the Department of Justice has sought to quash the lawsuit, saying it threatens to expose government and military secrets.

Listen, Mr... :p face. You need to read the Constitution. Article 10, the missing article-It says that the president, when a Republican, has the sole authority to have the executive branch do whatever the hell it wants. Seperation of powers and limited government is no longer applicable. If you disagree..that means you are a...A LIBBY...that is short for liberal. Article 10 says that a libby is all the bad nightmares Accord has ever had.

Dont forget if you happen to be an american citizen but durring time of war your race/religion is the same as those we fight you will be rounded up and shipped off to camps in cuba or elsewhere durring WW2.

 

If you disagree with being shipped off you must be a terrorist as only they would ask for due process proclaimed in the bill of rights.
