Well this is something….

Russ Tice, a former intelligence analyst who in 2005 blew the whistle on what he alleged was massive unconstitutional domestic spying across multiple agencies, claimed Wednesday that the NSA had ordered wiretaps on phones connected to then-Senate candidate Barack Obama in 2004.

Speaking on “The Boiling Frogs Show,” Tice claimed the intelligence community had ordered surveillance on a wide range of groups and individuals, including high-ranking military officials, lawmakers and diplomats.

“Here’s the big one … this was in summer of 2004, one of the papers that I held in my hand was to wiretap a bunch of numbers associated with a 40-something-year-old wannabe senator for Illinois,” he said. “You wouldn’t happen to know where that guy lives right now would you? It’s a big white house in Washington, D.C. That’s who they went after, and that’s the president of the United States now.”

    The latest NSA brouhaha with Eric Snowden goes to prove that Obama is quite the fascist. He must not be very concerned with how he will be seen in the history books, aside from being the first person of color to become POTUS. About the only mitigating factor I can think of is that he is most certainly aware that if he doesn’t play ball with the powers-that-be, he could end up like JFK. But, then, he knew what he was getting into when he stepped up to the plate.
