US Justice Department acknowledges wide-ranging surveillance of Associated Press in massive Government tyranny against Americans and the Constitution

Via RT:

The president of the Associated Press has sent a letter of protest to US Attorney General Eric Holder over the Department of Justice’s broad surveillance of individual reporters’ phone conversations.

In a letter received by the AP on Friday, the Justice Department acknowledged but offered no explanation for the seizure of two months’ worth of telephone records of reporters and editors. AP’s president, Gary Pruitt, called the ongoing monitoring a “massive and unprecedented intrusion.

The AP believes that more than 100 journalists are involved in the DOJ’s phone surveillance, which would have involved a wide variety of stories regarding government and other topics. Pruitt has called for the return of obtained phone records, as well as the destruction of all copies.

There can be no possible justification for such an overbroad collection of the telephone communications of The Associated Press and its reporters. These records potentially reveal communications with confidential sources across all of the newsgathering activities undertaken by the AP during a two-month period, provide a road map to AP’s newsgathering operations, and disclose information about AP’s activities and operations that the government has no conceivable right to know,” said Pruitt.

Lessons Learned from 9/11 and How the Government is Screwing that Up in Boston Bombing Case

Posted on Updated on

On 9/11 planes were transformed into weapons and used against the American people.  As a result, America learned that cowering to terrorists was no longer a acceptable default action to diffuse a major crisis and that if you are going to go down, go down swinging.  The Obama Administration, Homeland Security, and the FBI have apparently forgotten that lesson.

The recent Boston bombings are case and point.  The Government clearly identified the bombers within hours.  Then, for whatever righteous reasons, they decided to handle this themselves, effectively paralyzing an entire city.  In the 12th hour, when the political downside  exponentiation was accelerating, it occurred to them to cut bait and turn critical intel over to the American people being held hostage not by the bombers, but by the unlawful American Government lockdown.

Hours later the terrorists were no longer in control but were on the run.  Soon one was killed, and the other one cornered.  One day later the second terrorist was neutralized and the known main threat rescinded.

This was all avoidable.  The evidence of the terrorist photos should have been put in the public eye not necessarily in real time, but once the backpack carriers were positively confirmed, which was early.

It was the American people that were attacked, their way of life, and they deserve the brutal truth even when it’s not convenient for politicians.  If this country is going to continue as a free nation and expect American’s to handle the high cost of freedom, it certainly also deserves the respect to have the facts kept out in the light of day where citizens can make clear judgments and decisions for themselves, instead of being unlawfully locked down and treated like sheep.
