Governments are able to thwart terrorist plots by identifying their plans. By spying on those who are suspected of planning terror, the government can protect innocent people. There should be limitations to how much information the government can collect, but in general, some civil liberties need to be lost for the greater good of national security.
Not at all. The government spying has done nothing beneficial for our country and we need to be just as alert of danger as before. I think if anything it just causes us to be more concerned and the government should try harder to prevent danger because their methods now arent working.
