Yes, the timing is certainly interesting. Does make one wonder...
Not that I agree to being spied upon, as I dont. And I certainly
lean to the libertarian side of thought that asserts that there is a
huge overreach of invasion of privacy, and our rights are being violated.
The thing is, to avoid being spied upon in this day and age one would
need to be living in a cage, or underground bunker or such.
The sensitivities of satellites are such that there is nothing that is
private any longer. That is setting aside the technology of collection
of meta data, gps tracking in phones and rfid chips in credit cards,
web cams, dishwashers, phones, financial data, etc. Really,
when are we not being spied upon these days?
And it is almost amusing to watch the dignitaries acted shocked,
as they complain about "cold war" techniques.
So they dont mind the eye in the sky? What about the dozens of
drones overhead that no one is even talking about. Its mind blowing,
and they are complaining about phone taps.
I must say, I am more curious to learn where this is all leading.
