Coleen Rowley Calls for NSA Hearings

Former FBI Special Agent and MN CD2 candidate Coleen Rowley shared her thoughts on NSA wiretapping (Huffington Post) and applauded Sen. Feingold’s call for censure of the President for keeping the issue in the public eye.

Least anyone forgets:
"In fact, Minneapolis agents were so convinced of the urgency of the situation involving Moussaoui that they requested use of this emergency provision, not the regular FISA process.

Unfortunately, this would have required Attorney General Ashcroft, who had just ranked terrorism as his lowest priority in early August 2001, to appreciate the danger and sign off on the "emergency." And it would have required then FBI Acting Director Pickard to take the emergency request to Ashcroft after he (Ashcroft) had rebuked him (Pickard) earlier that summer, as Pickard testified to the 9-11 Commission, saying "he (Ashcroft) didn't want to hear any more about terrorism." Given these circumstances, FBI Headquarters quickly gave up on Minneapolis' request to seek AG approval for use of this emergency provision."
