on out-of-control US surveillance

I really try to be the calm rational one when it comes to accusations of massive surveillance and people saying that the government can “hear, see and read everything,” but this seemingly casual remark seems to be the last in a string of information that points directly to the US government trying, and succeeding in many cases, to record all communication so that they can go back to it later if they so choose.

As the article points out there have been congressmen, NSA employyes and private company (AT&T) employees all trying to blow this whistle. The article doesn’t even mention the massive NSA data center being built in Utah.

I guess it’s time to adjust pur expectations even as we try our best to push for transparency, regulations and change.
