I do not blame the special services, who were PWND and used like toys themselves. It's unfair to blame them really to 100% because they are at the beck, whim, call, etc. of corrupt people in suits.

The corruption is bad enough throughout the whole USA that special services should not suffer all of the blame - the corruption goes top to bottom.

US politics is polite warfare in the United States.

Here the police will harass and punitively detain and maliciously charge people for being political actors against local politicians. Even worse, people have lost houses to magistrate court clerks sitting on appeals.

So they are going to blame each other and the guilty one (once) are not going to be found at all. there is no one to blame. Let's forget about it and pretend nothing ever happened

Some people are always pointing fingers at others but they never ask themselves.
If honest Love and Compassion, terrorism will not surface; it is only "negative intentions" that attracts "negative elements" in life. You sow what you seeded.

I wouldn't buy a used car from this man. He speaks with what American indians would say, "with a fork tongue".

None of this is surprising to me an American, our allies are no more or less surprised then us. Our government is out of control it is over run by this military industrial complex, ruling through fear and intimidation, I total disagree with it, it is NOT what we as a people indeed a nation is all about, our allies should be critical opposing the NSA and its actions, because when the day is done the present admin. signed off and approves of these actions

People get the government they deserve.
Why didn't Americans vote for Ron Paul. He is the only one who had a decent strategy, he would have cut the NSA budget and used it for true Democracy and Freedom for people.
The media were ignoring Mr. Paul but still...people must have seen something ? Even I noticed Ron Paul and started to become interested.
How could Americans vote for Bush.. Twice!!!
Why is Manning in Prison ?
Why is 80% of congress millionaire ?How does that represent the Americans ?
How is it possible the FDA and the FED have free reign to poison and impoverish Americans ?

7/21/12 NSA Director Keith Alexander came to hacker gathering DefCon for the first time to recruit from the show's ranks.

LAS VEGAS (CNNMoney) -- Wearing a t-shirt and jeans, America's top spymaster -- National Security Agency Director Gen. Keith Alexander, also the head of the U.S. Cyber Command

Yo, King Alexander, we are over here on this Russian blog and you are saying to this guy "“That is a great question, in fact as an ambassador you have part of the answer. Because we the intelligence agencies don't come up with the requirements, the policymakers come up with the requirements,” Alexander said.

He added sarcastically: "One of those groups would have been, let me think, hold on, oh! - ambassadors."

Question is this improving our image abroad? All of this from your NSA programs, developed over time, and made visible from your massive data breach? You must have had a contingency for this?

When you look up the phrase, "modern American diplomat", you see of picture of a creepy rich delusional zionist who lives by secrets, spying and illicit dealings.
