You Won’t BELIEVE What’s Going On with Government Spying on Americans

New Revelations Are Breaking Every Day

Revelations about the breathtaking scope of government spying are coming so fast that it’s time for an updated roundup:

Just weeks after NSA boss Alexander said that a review of NSA spying found not even one violation, the Washington Post published an internal NSA audit showing that the agency has broken its own rules thousands of times each year
2 Senators on the intelligence committee said the violations revealed in the Post article were just the “tip of the iceberg”
Glenn Greenwald notes: “One key to the WashPost story: the reports are internal, NSA audits, which means high likelihood of both under-counting & white-washing”.(Even so, the White House tried to do damage control by retroactively changing on-the-record quotes)
The government is spying on essentially everything we do. It is not just “metadata” … although that is enough to destroy your privacy
The government has adopted a secret interpretation of the Patriot Act which allows it to pretend that “everything” is relevant … so it spies on everyone


These are just a few points on the very lengthy list, read them all here:

You and I probably agree 90+% regarding this, knowing how you feel about such things subject. And that may be a new record for us.
