Massive hypocrisy and continual lying by the US government about its surveillance state is having blowback across the planet. Russia and China have basically told the US to fuck off about Snowden. US bleating about freedom and transparency seems mighty empty and meaningless considering the NSA lies to Congress continually and Obama runs interference for the national security state.
If you missed it over the weekens, Sen. Rand paul said Clapper lied to Congress. And in a must-read, security expert Steve Gibson details how NSA surveillance works. Forget server farms, they tap into backbone routers on the internet.
You know the U.S. has hit rock bottom not so much when the official mouthpiece of the Chinese politburo accuses America of being the “biggest villain in our age”, but when more and more Americans think it may be 100% correct.
The US has much further to fall and its wounds are mostly self-inflicted. Dunno about you but I want my country back.
Who is actually bringing ‘injury to America’: those who are secretly building a massive surveillance system or those who inform citizens that it’s being done?
