Some lieutenant colonel Michael Kaye is here and international analysts before advisor Britain's ministry of defense.
We don't have any privacy anymore do it.
I think what's important for us a look at ship and and this is -- -- is is that the context in which the NSA operates at the moment.
It's got a very very sensitive role and is sensitive because the threat is unconventional it's a regular and it's a symmetrical what that means is that we don't know -- the threats coming from.
We don't know who's going to be implementing a threat and we don't know what what the -- actually going to be.
So in accordance with that the US has to take unconventional methods and NSA house take unconventional methods in north accounts and threatened somewhat.
We also need to understand that the threat isn't just from an external single source country you know what it feels like -- -- -- roughly what it feels like they're the threat.
Sometimes it what what they have done here is trampled all over the constitution haven't -- Haven't they.
Trampled over people's rights to privacy and and and would end in freedom from unreasonable search and seizure I mean how can they do that well I mean it's it's it's it's quite easy to see -- -- -- someone you see -- point of view because it's what they're doing what we get back to the argument we get back to the debate on civil liberties -- national security.
Well I think what's happened here is is nothing -- to full the NSA to conduct -- business.
Intelligence is an open Seoul's intelligence has to be close holes because if it's not -- -- than you gonna compromise.
The safety of the people US citizens abroad and I'm not -- also the safety of infrastructures our house to be -- -- but with that.
In hand columns the respect.
On the confidence in the US public for the NSA and the administration to do -- -- -- clearly that's a little -- kills for the moment.
Yet clearly it is I mean at one point I was thinking I probably should just start seizing the NSA at the bottom of every email but.
It appears it's unnecessary they've got him anyway well I think I think the NSA I have a but incredibly volatile today don't know defending them but they have -- actually kind of are defending what they -- -- bishop they -- that that that they don't looking for a needle in the haystack when it comes to intelligence twice the -- these guys -- -- -- for many many years.
And what would trigger a single mission.
Is months and months if not years of intelligence.
And if -- points -- intelligence troubles compromise.
From what we -- a couple of weeks -- lawsuit with the US embassy closures but you have to reset and then not mission doesn't go ahead so there was there was a lot that goes on behind closed polls it's not just about launching emails of -- of of of US citizens it it it actually is -- it's almost like a blanket such the house to pick up maybe a couple of sound -- -- a couple of -- -- -- we think calculator using.
We'd be you know if if if they need to search everything if they need to see everybody's emails and listen every phone call.
We need to change the constitution -- I couldn't I couldn't agree more on this so it was a wind change the constitution maybe they -- -- work on that but as long -- under this constitution.
We got rules around here and they have to follow them.
We have this document that was put together by our forefathers if this bunch running the place now wants to change it there's a process for that.
In the meantime they got to play by the rules I run the traffic like I get a ticket they steal my emails.
They can't do that chip it it's a good point but you know forgive me for saying that wonderful follows may be constitutional but the constitution together Al collier didn't exist then why hasn't somebody talking about changing the constitution rather than going around it or going straight through it with a -- -- -- this is the debate that we need to -- or maybe they -- if I created by talking about changing the constitution I hear them talk about breaking -- If the administration.
Need wind up -- Legends of the holes in order to -- the threats the US homeland.
I and ameliorate the safety to the US citizens abroad than this debate has to happen -- can't go Walton.
Doing what is -- under the constitution the way exists at the moment -- there were terrorists 200 years ago they were in different forms.
But the constitution not a cafeteria plan.
If they wanna make it -- cafeteria plan that you know like.
Just take -- you report -- want.
That then -- that's not the rules apply Great Britain had led there's another point to make here as well as and that -- detect -- -- we.
We we elected the apple won't you -- elected the present and and as a respect and as a confidence within the administration wants to achieve that.
If the president needs to make decisions and extremists to protect the safety of US citizens of -- -- he should be allowed to do that.
If not then becomes the new home that's when we need to have this debate that -- talking about it alleges that legislation such story.
Going to be thank you thank you and --
