According to Gen. Keith B. Alexander, NSA surveillance had helped prevent more than 50 potential terrorist events since Sept. 11, 2001, and at least 10 homeland-based threats. If this is an accurate statement, when were these subjects arrested and tried for their activities? Or is that a classified matter without the need to know by the citizens of this country? I guess it is best to keep things under wraps so as not to cause a panic, like the potential panic caused by the NSA and other government agencies who have lied to the public for decades.

Perhaps this email will end up with the NSA, so I should not write anything damaging, or truthful concerning our president and his role in all of this. All I can think to comment about President Obama is this: He has fooled all of you (his supporters), and it is beyond hilarious.
