And he warned me, as well, that if the U. He sent them an invitation. Barton Gellman, worried about a secret meeting in a foreign country like China, decided not to. But Poitras knew someone who might her. And she showed me these e-mails that she had been exchanging with this person who was claiming that he was a national security state insider with access to very sensitive information that he believed to be very incriminating, and stated very definitively that he wanted to turn it over to her and to me.

We all felt like a great wrong had been done and that we were all somewhat, if not all culpable. Nsa tonight west line did we miss the boat?

It was against the law to turn the NSA on Americans. And so there was a great deal of concern about the fact that— that we not only could not connect the dots, we could not collect the dots.

PETER BAKER: What they proposed to do is create a whole new surveillance program without warrants, trapping all sorts of information, taking advantage of the fact that modern communication trunk lines tend to come through the United States.

He headed to Washington to propose the idea.

There was a massive sell-off on Wall Street today. I probably knew his name. I doubt that the president knew his name. Almost certainly, Condi was there as the national security adviser.

Understanding the threat

Andy Card would have been there. But he was worried about whether it was nsa tonight west line. I want you to go develop a program, come back to me. And the people doing it are going to be swept into this thing. Is it the right thing to do? And this is not only unusual, but probably unique in the history of major U. This was very closely guarded that we were doing this. And he comes onto the campus at Fort Meade, up to the top deck, and hands me the order.

I spent a sleepless night pondering the legality of it. This was a very hard call. It was a very hard call. And they were doing this under an authority that had never existed before. Only a small handful of NSA employees knew what the president had authorized. Most were kept out of the loop, including this man, senior manager Thomas Drake.

And instead of responding electronically, which would have been normal, she wrote in a big, black felt pen. And so we knew, you know, something was happening. But before long, details were leaked to Drake. The agency had gone down a path that we had been preached to you never do. We were very, very, very concerned. Tom Drake stayed behind. All the lawyers have approved it.

We are under emergency— emergency conditions. Extraordinary— extraordinary means are required to deal with the threat. We just need the data. Tom Drake had hit a dead end inside the agency.

What's new
