NSA Whistleblower Says Recent Revelations Are Just Tip of the Iceberg

From ThinkProgress:

CongressDaily reports that former NSA staffer Russell Tice will testify to the Senate Armed Services Committee next week that not only do employees at the agency believe the activities they are being asked to perform are unlawful, but that what has been disclosed so far is only the tip of the iceberg. Tice will tell Congress that former NSA head Gen. Michael Hayden, Bush’s nominee to be the next CIA director, oversaw more illegal activity that has yet to be disclosed.

According to the National Journal:

Tice said his information is different from the Terrorist Surveillance Program that Bush acknowledged in December and from news accounts this week that the NSA has been secretly collecting phone call records of millions of Americans. “It’s an angle that you haven’t heard about yet,” he said.

    I’m starting to think that the impeachment process is too slow-maybe we should vote in a new Congress and think “treason and war crimes” rather than impeachment…And although it would probably result in massive heart failures from a certain segment of our population, maybe President Pelosi is beginning to sound more appropriate.
