The US surveillance is becoming like the KGB was. I hope we can take the whole thing apart and ruin the people who built it.

  

Gene ral Alexander should be on the top of the list.

"...whether from an organized criminal enterprise or a nation-state."
Ah but then, I repeat myself.

Yes, I have one of these implants in my computer already. It's called an appendage enlargement implant.

Welcome to Soviet States of United America. The sides had been switched, forget about the Cold War, its history. Russia pushes real democracy, while U.S tries to control everything, including in Russia. Gay propaganda.

I think Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post using his own money in order to provide the news agency greater press freedom. If that's the idea behind his buy, then he is doing a great deal to the cause of liberty.

  

It would be great if someone like Bezos came down on the side of liberty. He has the resources to make a difference.

I like how they label aggression as 'active defense'. That's the kind of double speak I've come to expect from Washington.

Wow RT! Every time I put a comment up that reveals truths about the US - you take them down.

I guess you became a part of the propaganda machine when you made us sign in!

the REAL feather in their cap of course being the releasing of snowden leaks, thus herding the sheep en masse to using the nsa developed tor network, thus further reducing the overall workload of the agency...

  


According to the tor website, tor was originally developed by the US Navy. Now it's free software developed by the tor project. Since it's free software, anyone can modify it, but the modifications must be approved by the project.

It 's possible that a government agent could covertly put a bug in the code that allows the government to easily tract users.

Who is Snowden? Is that his real name? When does a spy tell a lie or the truth?
