Reasonable people can disagree about the authorities the NSA should have, when it's appropriate for the CIA to use drone strikes, and how assertive U.S. foreign policy and intelligence should be.

理智的人可能会对国家安全局应该拥有的权力、中情局何时应该使用无人机打击以及美国的外交政策和情报应该有多强硬持不同意见。

It's hardly a news flash that a secret, clandestine intelligence agency might resist giving out information about its operations when not not legally required to do so.

一个秘密的情报机构在没有法律要求的情况下可能会拒绝透露有关其行动的信息,这绝非新闻快讯。

Sometimes, the intelligence community does legal collection against a legitimate foreign intelligence target and that target interacts with U.S. persons, against whom our people thus end up collecting information as a collateral matter.

有时,情报机构对合法的外国情报目标进行合法收集,而该目标与美国人发生互动,因此我们的人民最终将收集信息作为附带事项。

I have fiercely criticized both the Bush administration's counterterrorism policies and the Obama administration's - and fiercely defended both as well.

Government lawyers, like private ones, face the problem routinely of aiding in the defense and development of positions in whose correctness they don't believe.

政府律师和私人律师一样,经常面临着帮助辩护和发展他们不相信其正确性的职位的问题。

The concept of war is not the construct that will govern - psychologically, politically, and legally - our continuing response to Al Qaeda.

战争的概念不是一种结构,它将在心理上、政治上和法律上控制我们对基地组织的持续反应。
