McCain: Young people unhappy about the NSA should be more mindful of 9/11

He told Patrick, “Everything I say, I expect to be recorded. And that’s just––that’s the way we live, Dan. I mean, it’s something you’ve got to accept.”

McCain brought up American paranoia about the NSA listening to their phone calls and invoked 9/11 as a reason the NSA needs to keep doing what it’s doing.

“Young people particularly are not happy. We’ve forgotten a little bit about 9/11 and how if we’d have intercepted the right communications, we might have prevented 9/11.”
