This post is secret because no one will read it.

"That was a reference to Bush's much-debated secret program..." - NEDRA PICKLER, AP

Do ya ever wonder if they read what they're writing? There are various ideas to be debated here:

How secret was it? Cuz the NSA is good at keeping secrets.

Some members of Congress knew.

Has there really been "much debate?" I haven't heard a lot.

When did the media get ahold of this? Is most of this presumed "secrecy" simply because the media wasn't paying attention until they picked up the meme in January?

I discussed the fact that the NSA monitors international phone calls with several different people over the last 5 - 10 years. I thought it was common knowledge.

If the reporters knew about the Carnivore program, would they freak out even more?

Maybe none of my points are valid, but a "much-debated secret program" seems rather unlikely.

Hey, I just proved your title wrong!
Two things about this NSA secret program.
One,
It ain't goin' away soon. Expect to hear a whole lot of comparisons to Nixon in the next month or so.

Two,
It ain't legal. If you're OK with the Bush administration spying on Americans who phone so-called Al Quaeda members abroad, ask yourself if you would be OK with President Hillary rationalizing her use of the same power...

I (somewhat) trust Bush but I don't want the government to have this ability because...I don't trust the government.
