Article on CNN Messages intercepted by U.S. on Sept. 10 revealed

Apparently the NSA picked up a couple of messages hinting about what was going to happen the next day, but they weren't translated for the 12th, which i can understand. However one "lawmaker" tries to explain it by saying "They get tons and tons of information, I don't think people realize how much information our government collects."

Oh good, i feel so much better now. Let me guess, this means that although they won't know tomorrow if someone is planing a terrorist strike today, they _will_ know a week from now if i said anything bad about the Shrub.

Speaking of which, i need to spread the meme. Most people have probably already seen it, but just in case...

Apparently we're no longer allowed to express discontent with our government in a peacefull manner. At least not if it's at some kind of ceremony, because of _course_ decorum takes precedence over the right to free speech.

Hn. Even if they were translated on the 10th, they're not very useful from what we've seen of them. They're pretty vague threats, and the intelligence agencies see so many vague threats that those only acquire meaning in hindsight.

Well yes, which is why the information about terrorists isn't very important. Now _me_ on the otherhand... they know where _i_ live. So if i say that the Shrub is a fucking moron, when they get around to reading it in a week they'll know right where to go :)
