"The unauthorized disclosure of information about this important and entirely legal program is reprehensible and risks important protections for the security of Americans."
I will reword this as:
"The unauthorized disclosure of information about this program is reprehensible and risks important protections for the security of Americans."
I said in the other article....it being classified Top Secret....whoever is behind this leak is in a world of trouble...not talking about whether all this is right or wrong...just that their work protocols say this should have never been leaked, released, allowed to leave the building, etc.
Regardless of whether we think its right or wrong....this was classified info.

"Regardless of whether we think its right or wrong....this was classified info."
And so, we should blindly accept the classification and shut the f*ck up? Are you aware that classification has been abused in the past? The only thing separating us from Adolph and Josef is the light of day that exposes blatant abuse of the 10 amendments to the US Constitution. Just this week, we lost the 4th amendment. How far does it have to go before you admit there has been an abuse of power?

Like I said.....not talking about whether its right or wrong....just based on whatever the person's job was....this should have never been leaked.
If ppl are upset about this....they would be surprised about the other stuff they dont know about.

"to protect our nation from a wide variety of threats"-- hah. What he meant is to raise wars and to convert all the American citizens to robots.

Confused. This leak risks security, but he wants declassification?
