McConnell complains that it takes too many man hours to put together a warrant after the fact. That simply cannot be an excuse. We are spending billions and billions of dollars on defense. use some of it to hire more people. Nobody will object. But those of us who aren't so convinced that crazy Uncle Mike and mean Daddy Dick could "protect" their way out of a paper bag, even with dictatorial powers and x-ray vision, will have to be forgiven if we still think it's a good idea to have somebody double checking them.
This guy creeps me out. I know the congresspeople all think he's really something, but that interview is not the kind of talk I expect to hear from a man running a super powerful spy agency.
