The First Congressman To Battle The NSA Is Dead

Wednesday, February 5, 2014 5:46
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 

 

(N.Morgan) Many of you may not have heard of Congressman Otis Pike, but he led the Pike Committee in exposing the NSA scandal and those hearings were far more intense and revealing than the better-known Church Committee’s Senate hearings, which went on at the same time. His death has went unannounced and unnoticed, it seems by the media and this regime.

The Church Committee focused on excesses and abuses, implying that with the proper reforms and oversights, the intelligence structures could be set right. But as the Pike Committee started pulling up the floorboards, what they discovered quickly led Rep. Pike and others to declare that the entire intelligence apparatus was a dangerous boondoggle. Not only were taxpayers getting fleeced, but agencies like the NSA and CIA were a direct threat to America’s security and democracy, the proverbial monkey playing with a live grenade. The problem was that Pike asked the right questions—and that led him to some very wrong answers, as far as the powers that be were concerned.

It was Pike’s committee that got the first ever admission—from CIA director William Colby—that the NSA was routinely tapping Americans’ phone calls. Days after that stunning confession, Pike succeeded in getting the head of the NSA, Lew Allen Jr., to testify in public before his committee—the first time in history that an NSA chief publicly testified. It was the first time that the NSA publicly maintained that it was legally entitled to wiretap Americans’ communications overseas, in spite of the 1934 Communications Act and other legal restrictions placed on other intelligence and law enforcement agencies.

 

 

Thank you, Congressman Pike, for standing up for the American people and our right to know the truth. You will be missed, even if they want us to forget you, we will not. RIP-

    Yeah, a lot of very good people are moving on now. The papers are full of ‘estates’ and obituaries, these days. We personally lost 5 people in the space of 3 months. Another friend is floored, overwhelmed, with a death, a suicide, and another not expected to live out the week. Very hard on the families right now.
    Congressman Pike will be missed. He was born in an age that still had men of honor and repute, serving the public. Now, it is not just a rarity, it is almost outlawed.

  • gunner

    This article fails to mention that Congressman Pike was 92 years old and hadn’t served in Congress since 1979. Your implication is that SA or CIA had him killed and that’s bogus.

    • Болеслава

      I thought that at first but it became apparent very quickly that this was not the case. It was not implied, it was misinterpreted by both of us. Have the humility to admit that, instead of lampooning an informative and empowering article.

  • Patsat

    Any word as to how he died?

    • N. Morgan

      Patsat, I only know he was in his 90′s. There was very little about it or him.

      • crabby

        he was that old..!! he had a son christopher pike who later was the 1st captain of the starship enterprize 1701..

  • freedomringsforall

    Something like 70% to 80% of the trunk lines were tapped into and monitored and many local loops were also monitored even way back then.

    So, it doesn’t take much to guess the saturation now days (pretty much 100%).

    Your higher ranking reps and senators on the intelligence committees have known this since at least ’76.

    You can find out much as far as the basics of what the NSA is, overall, up to by reading books about it and reading and listening to the news and 30 year old plus declassified information about it.

    Heck Obama revealed the most damaging information I have ever heard a public official reveal to the public in his speech about the NSA is not recording U.S. citizens or their information.

    Obama stated that the NSA is only collecting meta-data not content.

    He also stated that the NSA has to get a court order to go back and examine the communications further if they feel it is necessary.

    So, either the process is that they are recording the communications and data and only the meta-data is available until a warrant is produced or they have a time machine that after the warrant is
    produced they can go back in time to listen to the communications.

    Former workers for the NSA have written that you can store the meta-data for all the earths communications systems users for generations of use in a relatively small building; and that makes sense especially if you understand that the NSA’s systems are supposed to be generations ahead of stuff on the commercial market.

    Manufacturers, commercial market, cpus have been limited to 32pit and now recently they are still only producing 64bit cpus for personal computers and other devices.

    So, you can use simple common logic to understand why they would need an extremely massive complex like the one they are building in Utah.

    So, Snowden and other recent revelations really haven’t reveled much of anything that one could not figure out on their own by opening ones ears and eyes and looking around.

      I read a lot of people saying “Now is the time” and “America will wake up and take back the country” blah blah blah….nothing happens…sitting here on the other side of the world waiting and waiting and waiting but nothing lol…talk talk talk…the days of revolution are over champion…over

  • Country Codger

    General Lew Allen was the first DIRNSA that I served under. He was well liked in the intelligence community by folks who worked for him. I think one of the best was Adm. Bobby Inman. He always stood up for his people. People don’t understand that at that time, on capitol hill, NSA stood for No Such Agency. The CIA and NSA were diametrically opposed to one another. NSA craved anonymity while the CIA relished it. Find an original copy of David Kahn’s book about the NSA and see how heavily it was censored by NSA while in the printing presses. Until you have lived it you can’t understand it and after you have lived it you can’t believe it.

      well that said a lot about nothing

      Otis Pike wirr be a soley missed in a China. (5000 yeals) Okay I know you know. Anyway, He (Ml.Pike) do the stop wiletap in against China. This is positive gestule.

  • Dr_Doom

    Oh NO!!!!! Obama is better than I thought. He was only six years old when Pike held those CIA briefings. Why did he wait 40 years to kill this old man? Please give us a break!

    • N. Morgan

      Dr_Doom, are you off your meds or what? :roll:

      The hearings were in regards to NSA Spying.

      You think they don’t stay in congressional seats that long??

      Strom Thurmond ring a bell?

      Please, if you are going to be critical, at least be right or on the same page as the article.. :roll:

      Dr. Doom, why don’t you join us back here in reality,huh? :wink:

  • Ozzie_Thinker

    No cries of “foul play”?

    :wink:

  • Bohunk

    Although the article never states it, the heading and the way the article was written, it intimates fowl play. There is no mention of manner of the congressman’s death. But it seems to be trying to link it to his investigation raising some to speculate homicide. This type of journalism is despicable. Journalists are supposed to inform and clarify events not muddy them up and not make unsubstantiated suggestions of fowl play.

    • HOGSTER

      OMG I can’t believe some of the comments here. How thick are some of you people reading things into this story that aren’t even there. Where on earth does it say there was fowl play? I instantly assumed that Mr Pike died of natural causes simply because of his age at 92 or 93 he certainly had a good innings. If the CIA were going to murder him surly they’d have done it some 30-40 years ago. RIP Mr Pike.

    • Mirabolin

      It’s ‘foul’ play!

      If you need reason to spell correctly then you’re basically a Mexican!

      Or a Frog!

      • N. Morgan

        I would point out, they took out Telsa, when he was in his 80′s..

        Then ransacked his house and took all of his research.

        I cannot say how this man died, only that his death and life should be remembered.

        He was willing to fight for the truth.
