MIT Technology Review: Bruce Schneier NSA Spying is Making Us Less Safe
Prominent cryptographer and security expert Bruce Schneier, who has been working with The Guardian on the disclosures of NSA surveillance whistleblower Edward Snowden, gave an interview detailing what the disclosures have truly revealed, how the actions have made Americans less safe, that more huge revelations "might" be coming, and that the average person interested in privacy should advocate for political change.
Also, the New York Times' editorial board has reacted to recent disclosures showing that the NSA weakened software encryption standards and apparently can decrypt anything. The article calls the back doors and special access routes "another example of the intelligence communities overreach."
Key Quote (Schneier): The NSA's actions are making us all less safe. They're not just spying on the bad guys, they're deliberately weakening Internet security for everyone--including the good guys. It's sheer folly to believe that only the NSA can exploit the vulnerabilities they create. Additionally, by eavesdropping on all Americans, they're building the technical infrastructure for a police state.
Every time you think the government has hit rock bottom, it starts digging.
Great job they did finding those Americans who participated in the Kenya massacre. /s
Liberals (which of course includes the media, academia and other “thinkers” of the day) are perfectly fine with all the spying, as long as it’s not used against terrorists and is limited to just spying on anti-Liberal groups like TEA party folks, Christians, and so on.
If they can’t catch Minnesotans before they go to Kenya and terrorize, and kill, then they can’t spy on us innocent taxpayers
I know your post is satire, but the truth is they’re only concerned about spying on the enemy. And the enemy is us.
The only reason they’d spy on the muslims is if they thought they had some information that would help them. I truly believe that. Thankfully, in the Middle East, muslim dictators like their jobs.
Meanwhile, 3/4s of the idiots in this country are going gaga to sign up for a new Iphone that reads your fingerprints.
Additionally, by eavesdropping on all Americans, they’re building the technical infrastructure for a police state.
The failure to detect the five Somali American terrorists put the lie to the mantra of “less privacy means more security”.
