>> The idea that he selectively grabbed just a few documents about internal US operations is clearly debunked.


But the idea that the NSA selectively grabs data from sources it *should* be keeping an eye on — that’s been even MORE thoroughly debunked.

I don’t view Snowdon as a folk hero. But through his efforts, I have learned that what the NSA has been doing is...

a) wrong
b) unnecessary
c) the precursor to evil — all that data WILL be used malevolently, if not by Obama than by some future administration
d) a violation of my constitutional rights.

So wherever my opinion of Snowdon as an individual settles out, I’m glad he brought this gross abuse to light.

It also seems obvious that the Democrats are using the information for political reasons. Most likely to keep tabs on the Republicans and certainly the tea party and other conservative causes.

If the govt conducting spying on its own citizens for political and social reasons doesn’t scare a person then they aren’t awake.
