7:35 am
just talking to other americans. >> if there's -- here is what iw heard during the last day or so. they are collecting all of this data, but it's not that they're just eavesdropping you on or me, or whoever, just at random. they're looking for specificfori information and specific typessc of information and transmission. does that that narrow it enoughu to 'ease your concerns.s. >> no, the government shouldn'th be obtaining the information ine the first place unless it has an actual warrant to obtain the e information based on the some se suspicion of wrongdoing.wrondoin right now there's a collectingg everything in case they need it later which violates the 4th amendment. >> house intelligence chair mike rogers says by doing this they y have already thwarted some terrorism plot. plot and some would argue that inat this day and age in the post 9/11 world, we are to do what we have to do to protect this this nation and its citizens. isn't that a rational argument?
