The poet Borges tell US a tale of two foxes reading and laughing aloud over a piece of paper filled with unintelligible signs. A hunter shoot one of the foxes and got the paper. The foxes tried to recover it using many tricks up until one day, after the hunter's family lost all their possessions, an brother of the hunter, thought dead, appeared and demanded the paper to sort his brother's problems. As soon as he got the paper he turned into a fox and run away with the paper.... The moral is: "never trust the foxes" and try to decipher the unintelligible collection of signs (legal loophole), THEY MEAN NOTHING.....

Eh, if people weren't so damned lazy they could make their own encryption programs, it's really not that difficult.

The tide will turn swiftly......Every country will have there own servers with there own anti spy software and US IT companies will lose much profit because no one can trust them any longer...

How often does US apologises about anything?! Especially about what it's doing to their own citizens. Surveillance is just the first step. Real life surveillance allows them to censor what you do: if the censor does not agree, they block out your message.

  

It's already working as intended. People are becoming more and more aware of what they think, speak, and write. Their silence is another form of control, and they've gotten what they want. We Americans live in an environment where we can't speak out lest we offend someone, or get arrested. Thanks, kikes.

The NSA is a disgraceful and illegal organization who are contemptuous of International Law and the Billions of dollars which it receives from Obamas government should be scrutinised as it is out of control. Snowdon is a hero who revealed to the World the outrageous antics of this vigilante organization which is cancerous in its operations on spying on everyone using that old excuse of national security. The USA government should listen to people and stop its interventionist warmongering policies which are causing death and destruction all over the World. Give Peace a chance.

“It should hardly be a surprise that our intelligence agencies seek ways to counteract our adversaries’ use of encryption..."

The problem is that the NSA (and, by extension, the U.S. government) thinks EVERYONE on the planet is their adversary.

Ok, I'll cool it, frustration does not do any good. I have been trying to post something for the last two days and I have been effectively block from it. Of course, it's not RT. US is doing more than surveillance. The real time surveillance is designed to prevent an individual's right to free speach.
