I don’t believe for one minute that the National Security Agency’s intrusive domestic spying on American citizens somehow foiled attacks on the NYSE or the NYC subways. If for no other reason that there is not a politician in the world who would keep that kind of success to him- or herself.
The decision to reveal this now is classic damage control politics — at worst, another lie; at best, an exaggeration. Apparently, it is not on the level of revealing Seal Team 6’s mission to exterminate bin Laden? How long did that stay under wraps? Ten minutes?
