United States of Secrets (parts 1 and 2)
« on: January 22, 2018, 01:56:31 PM »
These 2 Frontline videos give a detailed history of how the Bush/Cheney broadscale, warrantless wire-tapping by NSA ("the Program") was engineered and "legalised" by dubious means, despite it being against the Constitution.  As with all these things, it was bound to come out in the end, undone by leakers. Hayden (NSA) comes out of it very badly, but his career hasn't suffered much.
