i have little doubt this topic has been brought up before, however i'm interested in hearing a liberal take on this issue. as an independent i feel free to compliment or criticize either party whenever i feel its necessary and justified. which is why i would VARY much like to know why obama hasn't requested a FULL justice department investigation into the activities of the N.S.A. after all we know the Bush administration appointed the current head of the N.S.A., we know that the agency is in charge of domestic surveillance programs, and we know full well how far the bush administration was willing to go to abuse his power for political reasons. please understand, i'm not trying to say that the N.S.A. might pull a Nixon and funnel private info to the G.O.P., but don't the facts at least warrant a justice department investigation?
