Each week we asked you to vote for your favorite topic in -- Friday lightning round and tonight shows the protests in Turkey.
Before we get back to our panelists here from Turkey's prime minister.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- If there are any of those illegal organizations thereafter that.
Let us deal with them because -- part does not belong to those illegal organizations.
And those occupying organizations.
Yet the situation continues there in Turkey with protests that started over one thing in May now be about something very different -- what do you make of the current situation.
Well no one is watching the situation Turkey closer than the White House is right now President Obama has invested a tremendous amount of time a lot of resources and the relationship with -- -- These protests started as an environmental sit in there about so much more right now this is really about.
A secular but majority Muslim country watching a leader.
Pretty wearily and wondering whether kids were moderate reforms we took office are slipping away wondering whether he's -- -- -- -- some.
Religious values on this population so again this is a very troubling situation and out right now for you west depending on where it goes it the worse the White House is certainly.
-- -- Charles is democracy at stake here in Turkey.
Yes because he's not a Democrat.
He was elected democratically but a lot of people were Putin Chavez and others.
And then they go ahead and dismantle -- he's had a slightly more slowly than Putin but he's dismantled it and he's attempting to.
And the protest essentially -- anti its authoritarian protest the problem is that it's only a sliver of society in the street.
A lot more narrow than even tell you square.
To a Fiat to bet the house he bet on -- open.
All right I want to make sure we keep -- lightning -- topic so let's turn it NSA and issues of that and -- wanna hear now from congressman Dutch Rupert Berger who is the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee.
Unfortunately there was a lot of false information.
-- the Airways about violating people's constitutional rights were it was not legal or no constitutional rights were violated.
They what do you make of this and how old Tennessee program has been being -- about.
Roethlisberger is actually joined with chairman Mike Rogers and there is a bipartisan Intel committee people who are in the know.
Who are trying to defend the administration.
They don't give you a lot to work with when you're trying to defend them President Obama said that he wanted to have a national conversation about and -- he's not talked about it ever since and so.
Too slow to react to to the New York Times revealing of the terror surveillance program we let that warrantless wiretap -- and get tagged to President Bush.
It took too long for us to explain -- they should learn from our mistakes there are people out there we're trying to defend President Obama and this program they need to hope.
-- -- -- Well -- pretty -- in May be the NSA's Director General Keith Alexander has talked about you know possibly being able to declassify some of the ways in which Tennessee program is actually thwarted plots.
Maybe as early as next week than my guts and information -- would love to have that information I I agree with Dana that I think in these types of situations it's always better to try to be putting out some more information to try to get ahead of the story.
We do hear these things from people like Mike Rogers were they say it.
Trust that's the more we put out about this day -- will be for terrorists to try to find other methods are trust that this thwarted -- but until we actually have some evidence on both of those fronts it's really hard pressed it.
Accurately evaluate these programs are Charles let me ask you about our final topic tonight which is about CDS reporter Sharyl Attkisson.
And the fact that CBS's announced that her computer she -- alleged a while back.
They now have forensic evidence to suggest it was probed it was -- they don't know clue but they know what happened.
And it was also around the time she was reporting on -- guys -- she and DISH Network request the only ones he managed to themselves.
I have no idea who's behind this I'm generally not a conspiracy -- But I'm not sure there are a lot of other interested parties here and -- -- the record.
That our own attorney general in truth telling.
And other people in the administration including the Press Secretary.
I'm not sure I believe anything but that -- here.
In explaining this away what we heard from DOJ was.
To our knowledge.
We did not go into your computer will that's -- the knowledge.
Yeah and -- that was one thing when they put out that statement we knew there was wiggle room -- there.
But now that there is forensic.
Where do we -- next maybe to Cincinnati IRS office for two.
-- level low level employees were deciding to do this.
But Charles I and -- -- a month ago called the CSI -- god see this is the latest in the episode so we know that they did it.
We don't know exactly how that -- it was very sophisticated so that leaves the why probably thank -- the and then to do.
The Chinese hackers probably aren't that interested in Sheryl Attkisson -- and computer information so.
I think on this final graduation weekend as parents are sending their kids out they should tell them.
For every liberal arts -- you take you to take two computer science classes because that's for all the jobs are going to be -- any advice for grads from you.
Computer science I'm pretty bad journalism is not about prairie -- now he -- -- investigate hey Charles.
If you -- too little learned that -- line dance during the IRS.
The lessons -- free.
It's working for them pay our very and it and it came -- that there are right now think you very much.
