Feinstein tells everyone to just CTFD about the spying

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) predicted Sunday that lawmakers who favored shutting down the bulk collection of telephone metadata would not be successful in their efforts as Congress weighs potential reforms to the nation’s controversial intelligence programs. 

“I don’t believe so,” Feinstein said during an appearance on NBC's “Meet the Press.” “The president has very clearly said that he wants to keep the capability… So I think we would agree with him. I know a dominant majority of the — everybody, virtually, except two or three, on the Senate Intelligence Committee would agree with that.” More here:

Hey, you heard her, "The president wants to keep the capability ... and we agree."

Translation ... "We're going to keep spying on you so get used to it, dumb-asses.  I mean, do you REALLY fall for that 'we're public servants' bullshit?"

It's probably good she feels this way because I doubt the intelligence agencies would listen to her (or anyone else) if she told them to stop.  They probably figure it's for our own good and would continue the spying no matter what.
