Bonesmen? All here! In a mark of bipartisanship, former 2004 presidential rivals George W. Bush and John Kerry made the media rounds celebrating the NSA’s spying program on American citizens and European allies.
In an interview with CNN, former President Bush condemned Edward Snowden and defended PRISM.
Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, are in Zambia, In an exclusive interview, he tells CNN why he respects Nelson Mandela, what he thinks about Edward Snowden…. “I think he damaged the security of the country.”…
Asked about an NSA program that tracks people’s Internet activity, Bush said, “I put that program in place to protect the country. One of the certainties was that civil liberties were guaranteed.”
Meanwhile current Secretary of State John Kerry brushed off criticism in the wake of revelations that the NSA spied on America’s European allies.
The US spying scandal deepened today as Secretary of State John Kerry said it is ‘not unusual’ for governments to bug the offices of their allies.
The extraordinary statement has angered leaders across the world after leaked documents revealed America spied on 38 foreign missions and embassies including the European Union’s Washington nerve center.
Old Europe is apparently unhappy with being spied on.
Some people say there is not much of a difference between the two parties on the big issues. Both serve the interests of the same kleptocratic elite and competition between the parties – in the form of elections – is really just a contest between management personalities not agendas. No point here, I’m just telling you what some people say.
