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.
