The recent NSA debacle has us all reeling from the side effects. While the NSA was officially meant to tackle foreign intelligence agencies such as NDS, RAW and MOSSAD, it seems to instead be more interested in what its own citizens are up to.
From Google maps to phone numbers -there’s a whole lot of data NSA can see. The information that it fails to grab on its own it gets from companies such as Verizon. And the best part is that these companies charge the government tax money we’ve paid in exchange for the information and data they collect from our use of their services.
In addition to everything else we’re now hearing rumors about the NSA’s ability to track phones even when they’re switched off.Makes you wonder if they can see all this then why weren’t they able to put a stop to the Boston Marathon bombings before they happened? Hiding under the cloak of Section 215 of the Patriot Act, the project is now using national security as an added excuse.
However,“we spy so we can protect you better” sounds a lot like a psychotic stalker’s appeal in court before he’s sentenced for breach of privacy and invasive behavior. Do you agree with what the NSA has been up to behind closed doors? Or do you agree with their stance that this was a much needed step for security?
