Intelligence Community Chiefs Push Back Against White House

It appears to me that James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), and Michael Hayden, former Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) and NSA director, have decided that the Obama White House has been trying to "stake them out" as sacrificial goats in the kerfluffle over NSA intercepts in Europe. 

The Obama Administration has been trying to claim that such intercepts are a new development brought on by technological advances in the last decade. They are also trying to imply that NSA and the Intelligence Community (IC) generally have been "off the reservation" and conducting intercept operations that Barack Obama (the commander in chief of the IC) did not know of.

The Great American Spy Caper

Poor James Clapper.

Does Anyone Believe Obama Did Not Know?

Ron Paul's Push to End War on Pain Doctors -- Fresh Attacks!

The US Food and Drug Administration's announcement Thursday that it supports adding more pain medications to Schedule II of the Controlled Substances Act is a critical step in expanding through regulatory fiat the US government's war on pain doctors and their patients that RPI Chairman and Founder Ron Paul fought to end in the US House of Representatives.

Paul, both a doctor and US Representative, sought on July 7, 2004 to end the health and justice crisis through offering an amendment to the Department of Justice appropriations bill. Paul's amendment was ruled out of order after it was debated on the House floor, preventing it from receiving a vote. The Congressional Record excerpt below contains Paul's amendment and his House floor speech in the debate. With the FDA proposing expanding the devastating war on pain doctors and their patients, Paul's speech is more relevant now than ever.
