A Few Notes on the NSA Controversy
Liberals got what they said they always wanted
For years, liberals have been asking for a government that listens to the people.
They finally got one.
Anything Edward Snowden did …
… could already have been by people less inclined to go public. In other words, our enemies have almost certainly have known about this program for years. Isn't it time for the rest of us to find out?
On the other hand …
… I think the NSA surveillance doesn't go far enough. Instead of just the NSA/FBI/CIA/whoever knowing “whatever you got down there,” everybody should be able to know it. The NSA could not catch the the Tsarnaev brothers because they only have a few hundred or thousand analysts. A few hundred million analysts may be sufficient.
I've said this before.
