She is the big wheel on the Senate Intelligence Committee and is privy to spy info most in Congress never get to see. One of the so-called Gang of 8( »en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gang_of_Eight ) that the President and his intelligence advisers must keep informed. Her knowledge of threats to US not shared with other legislators(because they can't be trusted not to leak info) may be the reason she is strongly backing these intelligence laws.
Um, yeah, and because she and President Obama are NOT FUCKING IDIOTS. They know that, were there to be another major 9/11 type terror attack, and they had NOT done whatever they could to "connect the dots", it would be really, really bad.
This is not a left vs. right, repub vs. dem. issue. Everybody who knows anything is on the correct side of this law. Only those losers on the fringe who stand on some thin "principle" are against it.
Boys and girls, this is not rocket science. Your house has a bunch of bad guys out there who are trying to explode it, burn it to the ground, and kill you and your entire family. Oh, no, because some PRINCIPLE tells you you CAN'T TRY TO FIND THEM BEFORE it happens, you are just going to let everyone roast and then be blown to bits? Not likely you'd actually do this.
