In a very familiar sounding mantra, the NSA stated in a legal filing to a federal court last Friday that it’s ‘too big to comply with the law’.
“ [A]ttempts to fully comply with the Court’s June 5 Order would be a massive and uncertain endeavor because the NSA may have to shut down all databases and systems that contain Section 702 information in an effort to comply.” the filing reads.
The filing comes from a lawsuit filed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which is challenging the NSA’s warrantless collection of American citizen’s private data.
– We bailed out private banks with tax payer money because they were ‘too big to fail’
– The bankers are also ‘too big to jail‘ so nobody has gone to prison for trashing our economy and commiting crimes like money laundering to drug cartels. But, like Eric Holder says, “I am concerned that the size of some of these institutions becomes so large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them when we are hit with indications that if you do prosecute, if you do bring a criminal charge, it will have a negative impact on the national economy, perhaps even the world economy.”
– Now the NSA, following the successful excuse used to cover the banksters, states that it is ‘too big to be lawful’.
Anyone see a disturbing pattern here?
