  •  So who's wiretapping the wiretappers? (3+ / 0-)

    And who's wiretapping THEM?

    You know, with the still very easy availability of "burner" phones (prepaid cell phones you pay for with cash and a fake name and address and then throw out after a certain period of time to repeat the process), what's even the point of wiretapping? The people we should be worried about probably have a stash of hundreds or thousands of these laying around waiting to be activated and then junked, with no way (that I can think of) of knowing who's using them, other than perhaps voice recognition. No self-respecting terrorist wannabe is making terror-related calls on their permanent cell phones (or discussing sensitive things on even their burner phones).

    Gotta wonder why they tapped Obama. SOP, or hoping to find something on him to destroy his senate bid and political future. I guess he didn't father that Muslim Jihadi love child with Bill Ayers after all.
