These bassheads are forwarding information to the DEA so they can save us from the scourge of marijuana. Maybe now loony leftists & neo-con righties will finally see the danger in an ever-expanding government?

It's a truism that a government big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take away everything you have. Including, apparently, your privacy.

USA government were whining propaganda about being hacked and invaded by viruses from other countries when low and behold it turns out that the NSA was the aggressor all the time.

So the NSA has 'rigorous government oversight' which is hardly inspiring as that would be the same government that authorized the creation of viruses attacks on Iran which ended up attacking US companies!

This is an organisation that considered its allies worthy of betrayal so why should we trust anything they say...actions always speak loudest.

Instead of Booing, Audience should have thrown an egg or a shoe at him.

How long do you suppose it will be until real terrorists start targeting the USA? If they promote the idea long enough, real terrorists will eventually come into being.

The only difference is, real terrorists would not go to a lot of trouble to hurt "Joe Blow" Mr nobody - but rather target captains of American & British industry.

For the sake of these targets we should place them all under 24 hour surveillance for their protection. Monitor their conversations, banking activities and business dealings in order to keep them safe and sound.

Lovin' it, lovin' it, lovin' it. And the walls came tumbling down...

If PRISM is so innocuous as the NSA would have us believe. Why all the secrecy in the first place and why pursue Edward Snowden?

There is no way to legitimize the NSA's violation of all our human rights and the violation of our US constitution and Bill of Rights.

NSA lacks credibility and decency and is a symptom of an out of touch government who should be pouring dollars into Detroit instead of Israel.

Given that the NSA, several years ago, strong-armed the developers of the major, popular operating systems (OS) that are used in desktop, handheld and tablet-based systems to embed NSA-sourced surveillance elements into the software of said operating systems... this latest whistle-blast shouldn't really surprise anyone!

Is anyone really surprised?
They demanded 'backdoors' in EVERYTHING, got them by frightening companies with retaliation and they don't keep a database? Really? Do wake up and keep up...

You would be better to trust the legs of a snake

US Congressmen admitted frustration with Alexander earlier this year when the NSA chief offered the vague assertion that the data collection has “helped thwart dozens of terrorist events.”

I would like to see these documented cases of "thwarted events"..

The NSA are liars. They lied to congress & the American people. Of course they can't be trusted! I am a nobody. Just your average Joe who plays on his computer, writes a blog here and there venting my frustrations of life in America, & who enjoys the outdoors. I can not tell you how many times I have been intimidated by the wanna be stasi police state. How many times people would bring up conversation on what I viewed online, or even lower, what I would blog online or type in Microsoft WP. I have been intimidated many times, all for speaking out against this tyrannical police state. WILLIAM BINNEY = TRUTH!
