    Yes, let's kidnap the NSA Director and use mind probes to get all his secrets. :p

    If liberties are curtailed in the name of safety, couldn't that mean the terrorist has won?

    Section 31 worked behind the scenes to protect the Federation, who in our government is protecting us again?

    I think Section 31 at least has good intentions. For the Federation, anyway.

    The NSA? I'm not sure I can give them even that much benefit of the doubt.

    It's nauseating to hear the president defend this crap.

    Turns out, George W Bush is a shapeshifter, and Barack Obama is his final form.

    It's not that I don't believe this information is being used to track down terrorists. It's that the gathering of that information is doing the terrorists' work for them.

    I wouldn't compare it to Section 31 though. Section 31 operated independently. This is more like Admiral Lleyton.

    I would normally share my opinion of this reprehensible practice...however, given that I now know that it is being monitored and integrated into national security reports...May I just say that you look very nice today Mr. President.

    William Sadler played the section 31 guy in ds9 and the president in iron man 3, therefore this proves the moon landings were a hoax!
