Remember, the Senate is still controlled by Democrats.Senate Panel: Homeland Security Data Centers Mainly Terrorize Citizenshttp://www.dailytech.com/Senate+Panel+Homeland+Security+Data...In a new 146-page report released by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigation, a bipartisan panel of senators calls into question the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) claims that so-called "Fusion" data centers have successfully been employed to stop terrorists... The Senate concludes that when all the privileged details of the investigations were considered [investigations that Napolitano claimed were successful due to Fusion center contributions], there was no sign that the pricey data centers were successful at fighting any known terrorist plot.So what did the data centers accomplish? According to the panel the legacy is mostly negative. They claim the Fusion centers -- whose objective is ostensibly to share national intelligence with state/local law enforcement and analyze potential terrorist threats -- in the end mostly ended up violating U.S. citizens' civil liberties. Writes the panel, "[DHS liaisons] forwarded 'intelligence' of uneven quality — oftentimes shoddy, rarely timely, sometimes endangering citizens' civil liberties and Privacy Act protections, occasionally taken from already-published public sources, and more often than not unrelated to terrorism."___________________Brought to you by the folks who think government should run our health care system.--fleg

Not Obama or the Democrats, because the government isn't in charge of health care under Obamacare/Romneycare. You must mean Mitt Romney.
Most.Corrupt.U.S.Regime.Ever!Smuggling alliance with Cartel to Chicago Markets, etc.http://thenewamerican.com/usnews/crime/item/13118-stratfor-s..."Federal authorities in the United States have been quietly supporting certain Mexican criminal empires, especially the Sinaloa drug cartel, in a bid to solidify the syndicates’ reign as dominant powerbrokers in particular territories, according to leaked e-mails from a U.S.-based Mexican diplomat to the private intelligence firm Stratfor. If cartel chiefs cooperate with authorities, “governments will allow controlled drug trades,” the diplomatic source wrote.Other information unearthed so far in the leak, much of it coming from a variety of sources, was equally explosive. One 2011 e-mail from an individual described by Stratfor as “a US law enforcement officer with direct oversight of border investigations,” for example, indicated that American troops were already operating in Mexico under the guise of the drug war. “U.S. special operations forces are currently in Mexico. Small-scale joint ops [operations] with Mexico’s [special forces], but they are there,” the document claimed, citing the federal law enforcement supervisor identified as US714. The allegation in the e-mail was echoed by the Mexican diplomat and served to confirm previous reports of U.S. military operations in Mexico based on other sources. Also troubling were Stratfor documents detailing “surgical strikes” by Mexican special-operations troops — backed by U.S. taxpayer money and the Obama administration — which analysts equated with “death squads.” Essentially, then, Mexican troops have gone on a killing spree taking out certain troublesome “cells,” multiple sources, including those working for Stratfor, suggested. Another bombshell uncovered in the leaked e-mails indicated that the U.S. federal government had deliberately allowed cartel hit men to murder people inside the United States if they agreed to offer their services to Washington. “Regarding ICE [U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement] screwing up informants: They [ICE] were handling big hit men from Juarez and letting them kill in the U.S.,” the same federal law enforcement supervisor wrote in an e-mail. ..."
