President and Gonzalez caught lying about DoJ FISA workload -- White House unavailable for comment
Updated: 20 Feb 2006
The President and Gonzalez are lying about the DoJ FISA workload.
1. Share this question:
"Do you have more information, know someone inside NSA or DoJ, or have other anecdotes that will shed light on what is going on with the NSA activities or the FISA warrants?"2. Contact litigators involved in the NSA litigation, and share your concern that the President and DoJ have not been forthcoming on the FISA warrants or workload assigned to do what the Congress requires:
Also, intested in details on the phone company personnel, discussions, and agreements with the White House, DoJ, NSA, and other government agencies to engage in surveillance without FISA warrants despite their knowledge that the warrants were required
Litigators are aware of phone company concerns and ongoing discussions with banking and insurance communities over litigation liabilites.

Think back to the days of FISA, those days when the President said he was "too busy" to follow the law. The argument Gonzalez gave to the Senate Judiciary Committee was the "boo, hoo" too much workload, so DoJ quit going to the FISA court, and ignored the law. Today, the President openly admits he violated the law.
Is the US really "too busy to get warrants"? If true, we should be able to look at DoJ employee time tickets and monitor what they're actually doing. Their workload should clearly be more important than FISA. This would explain why there is no progress on the FISA warrants.

Despite FISA requirements and White House-DoJ assertions personnel were in short supply to process, it remains to be understood:
A. The scope of non-official DoJ employee time that could have augmented the FISA warrant process; B. Whether Congress, if the President had been forthright with the FISA burden, might have provided additional resources to support DoJ manning; C. The magnitude of DoJ IP numbers linked to nonofficial business unrelated to FISA requirements; D. How this non-FISA-related conduct contrasts with the DoJ Guidelines; FBI's Manual of Administrative Operations and Procedures [ MAOP: Click ]; and/or FBI agent training at Quantico [ Ref ].
Rendition: It appears the 737s are used for rendition, but they call it the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System. Ref
Chapter 2: Department of Defense - Military - Makes emergency supplemental appropriations to DOD for FY 1999 for defense-wide O&M.
(Sec. 201) Authorizes the Secretary of Defense to make DOD personnel available for: (1) a foreign or domestic counter-terrorism operation; or (2) rendition of a suspected terrorist from a foreign country to the United States for trial. Authorizes such Secretary to use DOD equipment to aid other Federal agencies in the transportation of such suspects, as long as the requesting agency provides security and maintains custody over the suspect.

Reasonable basis to question President and Gonzalez FISA-related statements
1. The data does not support the President's assertions: DoJ employees are not devoted to the FISA warrant process. The President and DoJ-Wiki-Gonzalez have been lying about the "not having enough time, manpower, or resources" to process the FISA warrant applications. DoJ employees are poorly supervised; use official equipment to conduct non-official business.
2. DoJ employee conduct raises reasonable doubts about the veracity of the President and Attorney General statements about FISA warrants. A reasonable person would conclude the "too much work" claim is at odds with the real reasons for the FISA warrants not being secured. Bluntly, it's simpler to use a self-certified National Security Letter, threaten others to be quiet, and simply order the telephone companies to do what the FISA court refuses to permit.
3. The data can be used to impeach witnesses including the Attorney General and others involved in the FISA process. The available data fails to support either the President's or Gonzalez's contention that they are overworked. DoJ personnel do not have enough to do, and the FISA warrant requirement and time required to process these warrant applications are beneath the DoJ personnel to bother contemplating. They would rather spend their time updating wikis than in complying with the FISA statutes or the Constitution's 4th Amendment requirement.
Disconnect between conduct and asserted priorities
4. DoJ conduct is at odds with the stated national priorities. This DoJ crew supposedly has a "big mission" on their hands. They spend their time on things which are totally unrelated to the "big task" at hand. Congress needs to get the DoJ employee time cards, do a time check on their manpower and resource utilization, and find out why the President and Poodle Boy Gonzalez are lying about "too much work." DoJ employee conduct is at odds with these assertions.
DoJ Discipline problem: Questionable DoJ Training
5. There is a reasonable basis to question whether DoJ training dollars are generating the desired results, or conduct consistent with statutes. DoJ employees are trained at Quantico on the Manual of Administrative Operating Procedures. They are given instruction in the statutes, OPSEC, and the US Attorney's manual. They even get some training related to professional ethics and DoJ statutes. Some of them pay attention.
Employee conduct at odds with FISA requirements
6. DoJ employee actions are at odds with their training and workplace standards of conduct. DoJ employees receive expensive training on OPSEC, professional certifications, and require extensive training to accomplish their jobs. Despite all this training, it is surprising that they are unable to focus on important national security issues, but are more interested in goofing off, writing personal biographies, and updating unofficial wikis.
Grand Jury: Reasonable basis to expand scope
7. A grand jury may find that the evidence is a reasonable basis to expand inquiry into the DoJ conduct. DoJ and the President have a growing credibility problem. If they truly are to be believed -- that they are "concerned" about the law and "doing the right thing" -- then the DoJ employees would be working on FISA warrant applications, not playing on Wikis. This is a problem for the White House to explain, not explain away; it is the job of Congress to pursue this to its logical conclusion: Why is the President lying about something as simple as personnel time utilization in DoJ; and what else is he lying about in DoJ, NSA, and the Joint Staff? The answer is clear: He is in rebellion against the United States Constitution.
Grand Jury: Prudent to observe Pattern of Conduct unrelated to FISA
8. It is not unknown for the President to mislead official bodies. This President will lie about WMD and reasons for going to war. It is nothing for him to lie about why it was "justified" to ignore the FISA requirements. The President and Gonzalez have been caught lying. It is the job of Congress to prosecute the President for violating FISA; it is not the job of the Senate Cover-up Committee or Poodle Boy Roberts to pretend something else is occurring.
Motions to expand discovery
9. There is a reasonable basis for the NSA-related litigation to expand discovery into DoJ employee conduct. Litigators need to use this Wiki information as the basis for expanded discovery. DoJ IT data needs to be presented to the FISA court. Litigators need to file motions with the Federal District Court in the District of Columbia compelling the Department of Justice to provide data related to their employee time cards, payrolls, and other relevant information to analyze the self-evident disconnect between: [a] what the President and Gonzalez are saying about workloads for FISA; [b] statutory requirements for the workloads; and [c] how personnel in DoJ actually spend their time.
Congressional Review Checklist
10. The interest is not isolated to civil litigation. The House and Senate Judiciary Committees, and the Special Prosecutor in the US Attorney's office have a reasonable basis to ask for additional information related to:
Manpower vs. reported work FISA requirements VS what the DoJ has said to the FISA court under penalty of perjury regarding workload, staffing requirements, and other "complexities" in DoJ that make it "difficult" to comply with the Statute; Telephone company conduct vs. warrant secured -- DoJ cannot credibly argue that the telephone company's conduct -- use of warrantless surveillance -- is justified in that DoJ employees have the time to update wikis, and know that supervisors will do nothing to monitor their non-DoJ related activities inside DoJ; FISA requirements vs. use of National Security Letters to backdoor the FISA court and FISA requirements. Access times to the buildings; time card data; and the actual times that DoJ employees were using specific computers related to FISA support; and why DoJ personnel were using official computers to update non-DoJ related items. DoJ personnel are consistently using equipment for non-official purposes; and clearly have no fear or threat of credible sanctions for engaging in non-DoJ related work.
This tells us one thing: IT department and management monitoring of employee computer resource utilization is superficial at best; and there is no credible basis to justify confidence that the DoJ is "too task burned" with FISA. Rather, it’s clear that there are DoJ personnel inside DoJ who are using DoJ equipment to work on non-DoJ activities.
US Attorney: Fraud upon Court
11. There is a reasonable basis to assess fraud upon the FISA court. This information reasonably leads one to suspect that there has been outright fraud committed on the FISA court; and raises reasonable questions for the DC Circuit Court about the veracity of statements DoJ has provided why the "can't supply information" and further undermines confidence that the DoJ is "really burdened" with a "war on terror." The evidence before us clearly paints a far different picture than anything which would justify any employee misconduct or FISA related violations.
GAGAS, SAS 99: Credible basis to increase audit scope
12. There is a reasonable basis to increase financial and litigation audit scopes. More broadly, is it clear there is a gross disparity between what the DoJ is reporting to Congress; and what the actual conduct is. It is appropriate for the Congressional Committees to significantly ramp up audits of DoJ time cards, management process, and data.
This increase in audit scope is clearly justified under Statement on Accounting Standard 99 ["SAS", formerly SAS 53, SAS82], and is consistent with Generally Accepted Government Accounting Standards related to indicators of fraud within the White House and DoJ.
Here is some useful information as you prepare for your radio discussions in your local community.
This is a sample discussion. This uses the DoJ Wiki issue, and how you may wish to raise this as a point on your local radio. Feel free to modify this how you like.
The problem is DoJ's connection to the internet and employees who do not focus on FISA or official duties.
So here's the question:
The Wiki IP data would appear to be a "probable cause" for a defendant's Brady request for all data related to DoJ workload. Defendants detained using NSA data can use DoJ timecards to prove, "No, the DoJ wasn't busy with FISA warrants as they have told the court and congress; rather, they were doing other things -- there was no excuse not to get a warrant. Suppress the evidence."
This information would be useful to compare:
The Wiki information also forms the basis for EPIC to demand through discovery with the DC Federal District Court information related to the DoJ workload and manning support related to the FISA applications; and get a clean story on why the personnel in DoJ appear to have enough time to goof off on wiki-items, but "no time" to focus on the statutorily-required FISA warrant-preparation time.
FISA Warrants not adequately secured before Telephone Companies engaged in warrantless surveillance, wiretapping, and forwarded information to parties not lawfully authorized to have access to the information
Given that DoJ Gonzalez has said, "We don't have enough time" -- yet they do have time to review non-DoJ-related Wikis -- a reasonable person would ask whether the FISA warrant requirement was simply cess-pool-canned, and the telephone companies were engaging in unlawful wiretaps without a credible basis to believe that there was "no time" to get the warrants.
National Security Letter Nexus
DoJ employees who are working on Wikis clearly don't have the competence or professional focus to give their energy to National Security Letters.
It remains to be understood how many of the National Security Letters [NSL] were used to side track the FISA Court, and compel telephone companies and ISPs to be quiet about unlawful surveillance which would have required a FISA warrant.
It appears the NSLs were used to bypass the FISA court; and that these NSLs were essentially self-certified/self-ratified warrants used to go on fishing expeditions for information that would subsequently be used for further unlawful activity, surveillance, and warrant requests.
It's well known inside DoJ that they can goof off and not engage in official business. In fact, it's so well known that they won't get caught, they have time to write creative essays about combat aircraft, schools, and other topics completely unrelated to this "big scary war on terror."
Yet, what is America forced to do? Put up with this drivel from the President about "the big scary story" in LA in 2002.
What a crock! This doesn't add up. The DoJ employees -- the ones that are supposedly too busy to complete "all the big paperwork for the FISA court, do have enough time to engage in no-official business.
So the question is: How many times has this "we're too busy argument" been given to the FISA court? Yes, somebody needs to look at issue of fraud upon the court, time cards, and what these DoJ employees are actually doing.
It's clear they have enough time to not only engage in this conduct, but they have enough "lack of supervisions' to continue this unofficial business in their work centers. This means one thing: They have no adequate supervisions to remain focused on the "big scary enemy."
Why? Because there is no enemy. There is one threat: He is in the White House.
I want to know:
It seems more likely that the DoJ employees had nothing to do, and the FISA court was simply getting ignored. Don't tell me you don't have enough time to look this up: You have enough time to go after a VA employee that talks about the negligence, war crimes, and official misconduct by this President.
This is outrageous. What other "big scary story" are we going to learn is a complete crock of non-sense?
I want to know the name of this DoJ employee that has enough time to surf the internet; but this FISA court and Congress has apparently been lied to by the President and Gonzalez who say, "We're too busy."
The President has no solid story. His DoJ employees are lazy, cannot do their job, and have enough time to make up dates to Wiki pages.
The story does not add up. I expect Congress to look into this immediately and find out the other disconnects that are going on between what the statues say, what the White House is saying was done, and what the employees are actually doing.
It's clear there is a big disconnect between what the President is saying, the law, and what the employees in DoJ are actually doing.
A reasonable person would conclude the same abysmal management that has failed in Iraq and Katrina is also doing the same abysmal job when it comes to matters of overseeing the NSA Independent Oversight Board, the Joint Staff, and the other information which the Congress has to be given.
Let’s hear some answers on the statutes; and why there is a disparity between what we are told; what the law requires; and what is actually doing on.
These three should be the same. It is clear this White House has three different problems: Their stories do not add up; what they say doesn't match reality; and the law is at odds with what is really going. This warrants a complete understanding by Congress.
Bullets: Talking Points for Litigators working the Litigation against NSA telephone companies
President and Gonzalez proven to have lied about DoJ workload to the FISA court and Congress!
Evidence available for you to review showing:
- DoJ employees were not "too busy"
- DoJ employees were not working on FISA warrants, as the President and Gonzalez said
- The FISA Court has had fraud committed upon it by the President, Gonzalez, and Joint Staff
The evidence is clear: This President has violated the law, has failed to secure warrants as required under the law, and his excuses do not add up.
Check the other DoJ IP numbers in the Wiki and find out how many other DoJ employees that were poorly supervised weren't detailed to cover this FISA issue.
This shows a simple problem:
A. The President failed to organize resources to support a clear requirement; and
B. At a time when the requirement was clear, personnel were goofing off inside DoJ.
This smacks of a grand excuse to explain away war crimes, FISA violations, and attacks on the Constitution.
We have evidence. It's all there! Spread the word to all those you know who are litigating against the telephone companies over this: Here is admissible evidence showing the President and Gonzalez have lied, committed fraud upon the court, and have failed to ensure that all DoJ employees were focusing on the issues, as they would have the FISA court and Congress believe.
What's worse: Navy Personnel doing updates, or Navy IG/NCIS doing the same?
Naval UnderSea Warfare: [ CLick ] aka Mike G: Likes plane pictures. That's cute!
Naval Criminal Investigative Service, Matt Babcock: Look at the Bob Ney updates -- we have some partisanship issues here. [ Click ] Do NCIS officials enjoy turning their back when NCIS uses official government computers to make wiki changes? Got a UCMJ issue or war crimes at Guantanamo -- NCIS appears to have "other things to do than investigate crimes." Do you like wiki updates or do you like being the target of a NAVY IG investigation. Maybe you should get another modem. Do you prefer Linux? You are dumb -- GCHQ can intercept OSIS as well.
Matt, is the American Legion "stuff" something you like to do while at work, or so you have a personal computer you bring to work? Ref: Virginia American Legion Post 364 [ Click ] Did you enjoy the President’s speech to the American Legion?
Matt, could you ask the President to stop unlawfully monitoring American's private conversations with the NSA programs. It would be really nice. Please say hello to Chris. You know this person:
Matt Babcock, (757) 645-4017, 708 Wythe Ln, Williamsburg, VA 23185Did you enjoy your wedding -- it's so much fun to plan for weddings is January, the white snow, the trees outside Williamsburg are a lovely tinge of brown. Does she still smile the way she used to?
Your President is a war criminal. Are you joining his rebellion, or are you going to stand up for the Constitution, Matt? People who know about war crimes have an obligation to report them -- did you do that, did you make your report, did you "send the big scoop" to your lazy friends at NCIS who are "too busy" to look at things?
I know you are lazy -- you like wikis, not Official-Use-Only Computer stuff. The NSA IG has a little friend -- it is called the Independent Oversight Board; and also the Joint Staff has a messaging service. They can send messages anywhere in 6 minutes. Did you get one tell you not to commit war crimes, or about the 5100.77 laws of war? If you didn't get a message about 5100.77 then this means that the President and SecDef are lying about whether they really did or did not "tell the troops" about "what was going on" after the abuses surfaced in Guantanamo.
Has anyone ever told you -- you have soft skin, Matt. Maybe Chris knows that.
Funny how people have "all this time" to trace "who did or didn't make changes to wikis", but the President would have us believe, "We don't have time to get warrants" related to the FISA; and the President is "so surprised" about all the things going on at Guantanamo. No wonder, their stupid Navy People aren't focusing on the NAVY rules -- they're worried whether people are or are not following wiki-rules.
Matt and Mike -- choose: You like Wikis, or you like to support Presidential Rebellions against the Constitution?
Translation for Matt and Mike:
Maybe if you were a real leader, you might get your Congressman to read the Constitution as well.
Choose: Do you want to have a Constitution -- or do you want to continue to join this President's rebellion against the rule of law?
If you know something, the US Attorney may be able to help you. There are secret grand juries reviewing evidence.
It is a heavy burden to hear the rumors about Guantanamo, and the illegal activity. Don't think you are alone. You may be able to get some help. Maybe they can make you an undercover informant, and pay you lots of money. Then again, maybe they’ll tell you to "go away" and "come back later" -- they don't really want to know about illegal Navy activity at Guantanamo; they only want to gather more information about Americans.
We're not Iraqis or Afghanis, Matt. We're Americans.
Choose: Rebellion with your President; or the Constitution.
The Constitution is all you have. You cannot rely on the Constitution to then use it to abuse others.
GCHQ's loyalty isn't to your President. It is to the rule of law. They know. There is more evidence. America knows what's going on. We know of the abuse inside the NSA, DHS, and DoJ. It is everywhere.
Even civilians can be prosecuted for war crimes. Your training is poor. You are not disciplined. You waver.
We will lawfully prevail and protect this constitution. Perhaps you will be on the winning side.
Have you told her about . . .D o l o r e s?
Your President is a war criminal. He is in rebellion against the Constitution.
America's President says there is a war on terror. He's actually fighting a war against the Constitution.

Navy -- Don't ask us about the Gongo in America. We defend Gongo, we don't explain it, we just love it.
Question: Why is the NAVY deleting information about Gongo, but they're keeping updates about other things? Seems kind of suspicious. You'd think that if they were really concerned about "cleaning up America" the NAVY would tell Americans about the Gongo, and discourage racially related content.
Navy -- We protect American Presidents from accountability.
What's curious is how much time the NAVY will spend on things, noticing the details.
Take a look at this: Notice the edits that the NAVY is making: [ Click ]
What we have learned: The NAVY does know how to read; can distinguish between good things and bad thin;, and can provide corrections when there are errors.
Right now, the President is waging an unlawful war in IRaq, the US Constitution specifically says not to do certain things -- and FISA is clear on what is or is not to be done during war time.
Qustion: Why is the NAVY spending so much time updating wikis, reading the fine points, making commentary -- but there's not a peep out of the Joint Staff about similar "important details and words" in the COnstitution?
Navy -- We don't defend the Constitution, we protect wikis.
