Our top story -- questions about trusting your government -- brand a report on the NSA spying efforts.
Finds that the agency is broken privacy rules thousands of times.
Every year going back to 2008.
Washington Post says many -- -- improper surveillance of Americans or foreigners on US soil critics say something must be done now.
The fact is is that's just a reflection of a sloppy attitude.
That I think flows from my culture that starts in the president's office look this this whole process that this administration has.
Has -- get to this point.
-- really does have to be reviewed I recognize a need for a a lawful and efficient NSA operation.
I think it's critical to the national security.
But I do understand that there -- bounds under which they are required.
Not to cross limits that they are required not to cross and they can't cross those under the law and they shouldn't cross some.
And the numbers it's as simple as they're Tucker Carlson is gonna try and match that entered the daily column to cohost of FOX & Friends -- -- good morning to you want your day is not done just yet.
What Sununu said it was lawful and efficient and SA operation right.
Thank -- I don't think anybody.
Is calling for the elimination of the NSA I mean it's of course useful to have an agency keeps track of communications among foreigners potentially interest the United States the question is should be -- -- -- spying on Americans.
They're not allowed to this administration so they want.
A few mistakes were made that deputy attorney general reassured us in -- now it turns out that this report leaked by the way this has not delivered to us by the administration shows.
Twenty over 2700.
Times any single year last year and to -- they break the rules.
And spy on Americans -- presumably most these were inadvertent.
But it doesn't matter.
Very cloak this from the public -- but -- also from congress they're supposed to turn the stuff over to congress -- -- didn't.
This got to us by the Washington Post which was leaked these documents what -- I don't think it's clear just yet from the articles what they did with the information.
Well apparently don't they or -- what they were looking for -- gathering this information well -- what was they have set up here -- most federal agencies have some sort of internal.
You know watchdog apparatus ombudsman is the equivalent would be in journalism.
-- it -- to see if they're doing their jobs correctly but.
That the NSA kept this information from congress whose role is provide oversight of what the NSA does.
And does wrong but it's pretty shocking -- there have been a lot of Republicans may or may be most Republicans on the hill have been supportive fundamentally of Obama's surveillance programs.
I don't think this helps at all you know I.
Your your point about keeping America safe as well founded -- so too was the point -- Sununu was made right.
I think the miss trust of what they're doing with the information where people go -- man this is this is a cloudy area we're not quite sure what happens next.
Add to that the -- -- right this a group of eleven -- in Washington but I have to grant the subpoenas to go ahead and get the information the first place.
The judge said we don't know when the government breaks the law we have no way -- -- that's exactly so right after they give.
Or after they grant permission what happens then look at and and that would suggest there -- -- -- for.
A certain level of secrecy is imperative of course because -- that information leaks to potential terrorists it helps them on the other hand.
Too much secrecy allows government to misbehave.
Without any oversight and that's what's happening people received subpoenas from the -- court for example to turn over documents.
Aren't or your cell phone records we have Google searches are not allowed to reveal in public that they receive those subpoenas.
And -- say if it if it catalogs its mistakes but doesn't tell anybody is there any oversight no there's not yet.
And I think for many folks on the right have been watching this IRS story play out Boyd -- -- -- don't need to -- information.
If it's it doesn't third -- would negative information 2000 when he.
2030 different aircraft it's never be destroyed lot of conservatives give the benefit of the doubt however to the administration understandably because they recognize we -- a real threat from from international -- terrorism Islamic extremism and they want.
To combat it as we have been doing successfully for all these years.
But I think this undermines the support among conservatives and I think the irony is that -- snow gave the information Washington Post quickly I'll -- -- -- get this on the screen here from the post today quoting now.
In one of the documents agency personnel were instructed to remove details.
And substitute more generic language in reports to the Justice Department and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
That my friends smells.
Like something's being covered well it's scary that you could have a massive well funded federal agencies spying on Americans and then hiding that fact I mean that's.
-- having liberals used to be upset about.
And they're not now because they you know do whatever Obama.
Tells them but.
Thirty years ago they would have been jumping up and down with us stories out today we'll see where does he when there was this we -- yes I am on on -- we will be there right --
