Just because our govt. Has been spying on Americans and other countries for as long as anyone can remember doesn't make it acceptable.
The source even points out that with all the information that gets collected they fail to act on it in a timely manner.
As has already been said, I could care less about Snowden, I'm interested in the info he has released.
Collecting everything there is to know about everyone on the planet to catch a handful of scumbags is not a fair trade.
That's the thing: they fail to act on it. Just like Pearl Harbor.
Why? Do you think that they are just too busy to stop a base from being bombed? Or at the very least, send out an alert so the guys weren't just
all hanging out in dock?
No. They get their information, and act on what they want to act on. The rest.....they just allow to happen. Which then begs the question: why are
they collecting all this data in the first place? I think you see the point here....it isn't collected to thwart terrorism. Never has been, never
will be. Its for something a little different....now what could that possibly be?
