  • They caught over 54 people!! That cold have been 54 plus 9 11

  • They are going to do it anyway. If this was a surprise then you were living in fairy tale land. It was obvious.

  • Ceding some of our liberty for security is the way to go :)

  • A lot is done in the name of National Security. I have nothing hide. They can read my emails, sift through my trash, examine my financials, etc. If doing so in any way makes us safer, so be it. Honestly, if you read some of the posts online, I'm surprised that the NSA doesn't do more of it. There are some sick individuals out there!

  • I completely agree also, I have nothing to hide either.

  • Let us have some privacy at least!

  • They've gone too far. I think they should only watch suspected criminals, felons, or sex offenders for a certain amount of time.

  • no because if continue to let our privacy become eroded on the basis it will keep us all safe we will lose them all and become like n korea

  • If they want to watch me [Redacted] to Dilara, let them.

  • It is violating our rights guaranteed by 4th and 5th amendment.

  • Support the fourth!

  • There have been claims of the surveillance uncovering potential plots, most of them fairly low level. But it's always possible that these plots could have been uncovered without this level of surveillance. Add that with the fact that there is a slippery slope to watch out for, and allowing its continuing existence is questionable.

  • Nothing the NSA collects leads to anything. There hasn't been any terrorist attacks since 9/11 and 9/11 was not done by foreign terrorists. If there really were terrorists here, we would be having attacks on malls, schools, colleges, energy production facilities, gas stations --- because frankly, all these things do not even have competent guards. The entire NSA program is about Americans period.

@atheist The question is not whether they will, it's whether or not they should.

And a tip to the poll maker, lay off of the multiple question marks, it looks a little juvenile. I'm not trying to offend, I just think if you cut that out more people might visit your polls.

I always thought reinforcing emotion in an argument was quite attractable.. Just my humble opinion. Anyways, my thoughts on this topic is, if the NSA can't do mass surveillance, just be ready for another 9/11 or worse.

@Horoush --- for another 9/11 to happen, you would have to have terrorists in all key military positions that would stop all American fighters to not intercept any planes. You do realize that just 11 miles away from the Pentagon is an air force base right? You don't find it odd at all that the entire world knew America was under attack just 30 minutes after the first tower came down, but no fighters were flying over DC? When one of the best and most well staffed Air Forces bases exist just miles away? When that base was built to protect the very establishments that were attacked? Come on.

Sure, let's base our facts on here-say and not care about security at all.. The truth is we simply weren't prepared for a terrorist attack of that magnitude and if we stop mass surveillance, I will guarantee you another 9/11 or worse.

Or... We could leave other countries alone.
Haroush says2014-07-04T11:56:12.5732802-05:00
Sure let's just leave other countries alone while they have their insiders here in America as we speak. The truth is spying will never stop. And if we don't pay attention to what is going on other countries, we will end up having world wide national security issues inherited on a large scale. Or we just may have another surprise attack like that which was done at Pearl Harbor. Don't think so? Keep testing the waters and see what happens. Honestly, it most likely would be a surprise EMP attack on the U.S. which would bring devastation. Don't think it would? Let's go ahead and let the manufactured experiments begin.

Haroush ... I agree whole-heartedly.
