I've begun to fear my own government more than the terrorists they claim to be protecting us from. This train has totally jumped the tracks!
Why is this article so inconspicuously displayed on the Strib site? This really deserves greater display and attention!
Who knows what can be believed from the NSA, the IRS, Team Obama? Scandals, lies and corruption.
This is waaaaaaaaay past "metadata" people!! I wish i could impart upon the non technical savvy reader... the gravity of this kind of spying. This isn't the same thing at all - as the dismissive, "we're just keeping metadata" explanations we've been fed thus far.
Time to start asking, "WHO ARE THEY? WHO IS THIS NSA?" Look to Khzaria.
I wish the NSA would do something useful like going after the companies that make robo-calls, both domestic and foreign. They have the technology!
This is serious and disturbing. These programs go too far by much more than a mile. And contrary to the NSA suggestion that there is "no need to know" on the Bullrun program, it's vital that this information, and more, becomes fully public and the abuse of even trying this be stopped, not buried deeper and deeper, and those who push these matters be held to account to the public at large. This should all be deemed simply and totally unacceptable in a free society no matter the rationalization these shadowy officials might give themselves, much less others.
So, who's watching the watchers?
We need to begin a massive, class action suit against all vendors who have rolled over, and deliberately crippled their software and\or information systems; and have elected to be co-conspirators in spying on U.S. citizens! NSA couldn't do it all on their own! You and I have been aggregiously violated!
They had better show up in court with the warrents to document\support what they have done.
Thank you America for protecting us.....Please keep it up..
