In a speech in January, Hayden said the warrantless surveillance program was not only limited to al-Qaida communications, but carefully implemented with an eye toward preserving the Constitution and rights of Americans.
"As the director, I was the one responsible to ensure that this program was limited in its scope and disciplined in its application," he said.
Why are there even hearings for this liar? He not only shouldn't get the job, he should be in prison ... in Gitmo.
