Natinal Security Agency

Rasmussen Reports Sixty-four percent (64%) of Americans believe the National Security Agency (NSA) should be allowed to intercept telephone conversations between terrorism suspects in other countries and people living in the United States. A Rasmussen Reports survey found that just 23% disagree.

I wonder if that 23% would be willing to move to one of the blue states, and we could then ask the NSA to not intercept any calls from AlQaeda to that particular state. That way the terrorists could plan any attack they wanted in that blue state.
Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Americans say they are following the NSA story somewhat or very closely. Just 26% believe President Bush is the first to authorize a program like the one currently in the news. Forty-eight percent (48%) say he is not while 26% are not sure. Eighty-one percent (81%) of Republicans believe the NSA should be allowed to listen in on conversations between terror suspects and people living in the United States.
I certainly agree with them, and believe that if someone in the US is heard talking to an AlQaeda member that call should be justification for a FISA warrent to tap any calls that person makes to others in the US.
That view is shared by 51% of Democrats
The percentage would be higher if the Dems held the White House.
and 57% of those not affiliated with either major political party.
