US bill to curb NSA spying, disingenuous: Lawyer

Press TV has conducted an interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, international lawyer from Vancouver, about the US House of Representatives passing legislation to curb the National Security Agency's spying activities.

What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.

Press TV: What is your opinion on this bill as it stands right now?

Webre: Well we have to look at two things. First of all we have to look at the re-authorization of the National Security Agency metadata program itself and that is what this bill is all about and people have to remember that section 215 of the Patriot Act passed in the throes of 9/11, the false-flag operation of 9/11 was what originally authorized the NSA metadata program which is what we are talking about. And this would expire in June of 2015. So if they did not pass this bill, this program would expire now.

What is important is that there has been no congressional investigation authentic of 9/11 and if they investigated, they would discover that it was an inside job and that every agency from the NSA to the DOD, to the DIA was involved in 9/11 that it was attack upon the United States and a violation of section article three of the US Constitution which is treason. And that then sitting president, vice president and secretary of defense - Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld - were be sitting in a jail, or if they would be given capital punishment they would be dead by now.


Now having said that, it is important that we say that for the record, now let’s get to the so-called watering downs. Once you get passed that illegality, well there are at least five watering downs that they did. First of all they put in a “such as”, they introduced ambiguity into the definition of the term specific selection term, they said “such as.”

Now what you can do there is this is a trick in the law so that you can put in what they call boilerplate and so you have all these NSA operatives, you know, and clerks. I mean ever Snowden talks about them they just go and they have standard boilerplate, they put it in and they are going to keep on doing what they have been doing. They removed a provision banning reverse targeting of communications of US persons. They gave the intelligence community monitorial control over the declassification review, they appeared to condone the NSA’s practice of revealing the content of international communications about targeting individuals and they watered down transparency reporting permissions for communications companies and services. 


So to say that that is a watered-down bill is itself disingenuous because number one the real story is that they are trying to pass it so that they can re-authorize the NSA metadata practice that itself was put in by false-flag operation, that itself was treason and an attack upon the United States by the NSA, by the Department of Defense, by the president, by the vice-president, who should be in jail instead of a pension and you have got all these other watering down.

So if that is the United States that people want to honor the United States government, well, be my guest and those are my opinions and I am an international lawyer.
