There was just an article in The Wall Street Journal about how Obama had *just* told the German Chancellor that he had no idea she had been being
monitored by the N.S.A. -
My mom thought that meant Obama was incompetent, but I told her, no, he's either lying about this, or the N.S.A. and branches of the C.I.A. have been
operating outside of the legal bounds of our government and our Democracy for decades, which means that it would not be something specific to
But as you can all see, Obama was lying. Was he lying to the French as well when he told them that their newspapers were over-reacting to the fact
that the N.S.A. were recording up to 70 million civilian phone calls per month?
And, as someone in the newspaper mentioned, what does spying on the German Chancellor have to do with protecting our county from terrorists? Nothing!
@Juki: Yeah, you are right, even Obama is under surveillance.
@ Boncho: Yes, there is a problem when the laws are not accessible to the public, a major problem, in fact. But, as you mentioned, that's how things
have been in America for at least 50 years, and that affects the rest of the world as well, because the U.S. is acting as the World Police.
Should the United States, as a world leader and proponent of Democracy, have entire factions capable of destroying nations or corporations or
individuals without legal oversight? That's the question. That question is *not* going to go away.
There are arguments for both sides, the obvious one being that we shouldn't be spying on people, but the not-so-obvious one being that maybe some
other faction is trying to take out our spying resources because they are about to make a major move, while they keep theirs operational.
Another question: Was Snowden working for another faction.
A very important question: Is Obama himself working for another faction, but about to be used as a scapegoat?
I could see Obama being assassinated very soon, especially if the people he works for are trying to tie up loose ends.
