Who are the terrorists here? Why would anyone charged with the responsibility of a 4 year old even believe that terrorism would be something that a 4 year old would comprehend? What possible good could come from this? Why put a family through this? Theresa May needs to be told to put a stop to this stupidity. School teachers have far better things to do than bang her drum.
Not just the UK - we are seeing this all over the place since the Snowden revelations. All these governments that have been so busy telling us their spying is lawful are passing laws to make them so. Why would there be a debate? That would highlight years of government criminality.
Who if not the FBI? Certainly not the CIA (extra-territorial), nor NSA (intelligence). Now, preventing these atrocities is in the purview of the FBI and does NOT require spying on the entire citizenry. The point is that all this spying is not stopping this sort of thing, not capable of stopping it, and more likely to create more extremists (something the FBI seems intent on doing directly as well).
In this case, we see that these TLA's are still siloing themselves and incapable or working together.
If the FBI was any good at all at this, there would be no dead people. I wonder if Comey is prepared to look the bereaved families in the eye and explain why, with all the access and resources they already have, they cannot find these people before they commit these atrocities?

That is probably a marketing "VP" asking for that, and looking at the result only on the internal intranet. The same breed that think people want to watch crappy ads. The Web designers will simply be writing what they were told to write.
It's not so much a flip flop, as the ability to hold multiple contradictory opinions on the same topic. All they need to do is trot out the one that is most convenient at the time. It's a talent many politicians have.
Gotta say, religion and copyright have a lot in common: - follow long established doctrine - suspend logic - seem to be endlessly open to re-interpretation by the practitioners - require blind faith Let them slug it out. Popcorn ready :)
No. God did not write it. The people that did died more than [50 | 70 | 90][select as inappropriate by location] years ago. You could argue that God wrote everything, that everything is a religious gathering and therefore exempt...
What I find astounding is that people, even the apologists like Fienstien, really don't understand the logic of these bulk collections. For instance, the AT & T taps take everything. There is no possibility of not taking communications involving senators, privileged legal communications, or anything other prohibited communications. It is ALL. The only way the NSA could avoid any of these is to collect none of them in bulk. It's largely the same story for minimisation. You actually need to know it's priveledged to minimise it, and in most cases, they never get that far. No amount of legislation will change that logic. The NSA crossed the rubicon quite some time ago, and as we have seen, they aren't going back.
