Then Senator Joe Biden had some very clear things to say about government surveillance and data collection in 2006.
On the heels of an ACLU attorney’s statement,”The Constitution does not permit the suspicionless surveillance of every person in the country,” Slow Joe had some harsh comments for W and his Veep Cheney.
“I don’t have to listen to your phone calls to know what you’re doing. If I know every single phone call you made, I’m able to determine every single person you talked to. I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive.”
Yes…in 2006 Biden said:
“And the real question here is what do they do with this information that they collect that does not have anything to do with al-Qaida, and we’re going to trust the president and the vice president of the United States that they’re doing the right thing? Don’t count me in on that.”
Oh how things change now that you’re in the co-pilot seat, Mr. Biden!
