    No they don't. In order to be embarrassed you must have accountability, and those in govt are professionals at pointing the finger, playing dumb, and otherwise diverting attention away themselves. Considering this program spanned more than one administration, any member of one can blame the other... "Not our fault, they started it!" "Not our fault, they kept it going!"

    Speaking of Snowden, he was just granted asylum in Russia. I doubt he'd be able to beat the 'Aiding the Enemy' charge like Manning did after that.

    You're just saying that because you don't have a lucrative defense contract.

    And BTW, the Taliban problem was in Afghanistan.

    And since all a Talib had to do was to take off his signature turban to become a "civilian", then if you kill 2 dozen "innocent civilians", you'll probably nail a 1/2 dozen Taliban fighters while you're at it.

    I think your internet should be censored by Iranian rules, not surveilled by the US.

    Because then, we simply wouldn't have to listen to your s***, and you wouldn't have to try and guess who's recording it.

    I'll try to tidy this up in a way you might be able to understand it:

    George W. Bush was in essence, a war time president, and was elected accidentally by virtue of the american public being under duress due to the events of 911.

    The Kennedy family kept more intelligent individuals than Wubba in attics, while they actively campaigned for contributions toward finding the cause and cure for the birth defect of mental retardation.

    **** Cheney, being a closet war monger and sociopath, wanted to blow up Iraq. So, he coerced his meat puppet George W. Bush to sic the American armed forces on Saddam Hussein....the end.

    The rest of us have moved on. So should you.
