Foreign politicians and officials who took part in two G20 summit meetings in London in 2009 had their computers monitored and their phone calls intercepted on the instructions of their British government hosts, according to documents seen by the Guardian. Some delegates were tricked into using internet cafes which had been set up by British intelligence agencies to read their email traffic.

It took FIVE people to write this article! That has to be a record.
Good posts. The Snowden case is an interesting one. One does not have to accept false choices of either being for the NSA or Snowden. Some people apparently can’t deal with multiple bad guys and degrees of bad. Both the NSA and Snowden are wrong. Snowden’s action crossed a line when he started spewing off about China. Snowden should be tracked down and neutralized (shot) before he does any more damage. NSA should be reined in and those involved dealt with. There are no heroes here.
I got my whistle
LOL, I’m just having a little fun and trying to lighten the mood up.
Thats probably needed. I guess it comes down to me not understanding why some people will support the clearly unconstitutional actions of this administration.
We should be rioting in the streets over this.
There is so much crazy stuff going on in the news, that I think a lot of people are on edge. It’s hard not to be angry at any number of things. IRS, NSA, Benghazi, Syria, Fast and Furious, etc...
OK. When will you start rioting?
If you think the NSA monitoring is effective against terrorism, then why not simply place a LEO inside of every home? That would be really effective!
Cannot believe the people so willing to give up their liberties to be “protected” when in fact this protection is merely a facade, as proven by the Boston Marathon.
“Ahh so you are taking heat for your position and now you try to be insulting to deflect away from your utter humiliation.”
Now insulting? Insulting from the first post on the thread...I scroll past now.
I really need to quit rattling my zipper.
The time to riot will be when Snowden proves zero electronically fraudulently stole ‘12.
... which could be tomorrow.
“My guess is that for political/safety leverage he would release it incrementally in a, didnt mind that punch? How about THIS one...?-type manner.”
- An observation -
People that “carry” in various situations are now carrying everything from a Seecamp .32 to a Colt .45acp 100% of the time
Tracking, recording, and archiving everyone’s phone calls and emails is never going to stop Americans from shutting down the NAZIS in Washington DC -
Bite the pill crackhead
I think that because we’ve been deceived, lied to, and steam rolled over, we (Americans) are desperate for the truth and validation of how we perceive policy ..and most of us will take it any way we can get it.
Don’t do drugs and carry myself.
You haven’t stopped a single thing yet. Everything Obama wants is either done or on its way.
Like it or not, this what these agencies are supposed to do..
When did posters on FR (won’t call themFreepers) become such jerks? (not you)
A person who wants to hold political office may run the first time on ‘principles’ but subsequent elections are probably because they like being there or just need the job. Since so many of them are extremely wealthy I assume its more of the first category.
To win elections its a matter of numbers. They do whatever they have to in order to get the votes to stay in office. The bastard Karl Rove is an expert at this. Its why people like him control the Republican party. Just my opinion.
