"The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio and video chats, photographs, e-mails, documents, and connection logs that enable analysts to track one target or trace a whole network of associates, according to a top-secret document obtained by The Washington Post."


Awesome. The fact that some of these companies claim to have no knowledge of this gave me an extra chuckle.

I read an article recently claiming the CIA financed Facebook. That's starting to sound very plausible. Why not create a "social network" where people will gladly provide all kinds of information on their own...makes too much sense.

A nice breakdown of PRISM by Time.

Stopping to think what this country will be like in 40 years is fun. I've been telling friends for awhile now that this "cloud" nonsense is just going to be one giant database the government will use to keep track of everything. Come one come all, load up EVERYTHING onto the cloud, see how convenient that is!

When will Americans learn.

I think we need to all just download copious amounts of Porn.  That will be our cover when we try to engage in free speech.

It's disturbing the number of people who will actually side with this argument. The government knows they can throw in the word "terrorist" when attempting to justify this type of behavior and lunatics like yourself will give them a free pass to do whatever they like.

Imagine two Russian brothers, already considered potential terrorist threats and previously questioned by the FBI, wanted to set off bombs at a marathon. I guess I should feel safe knowing these programs exist to stop those kinds of attacks, in that hypothetical scenario the plan would surely be sniffed out before it was carried out.

Verizon customer service must have been unbelievably busy the past few days, with every terrorist around the globe switching carriers ::)

The same thing I've called him for months.  He's as unoriginal as and brainless as they come, he even copies the lamearse things you post.

you and your kind will be the loudest protesters complaining about your gov't not doing enough when you and/or your loved ones get their limbs blown away like was perpetrated against our fellow Americans in Boston

Wrong, bozo. I don't want the government doing a damn thing for me, that's your fantasy land nonsense. And you missed the point. How can two suspected terrorist threats live here for a decade and still pull off what they did even with the government invading our privacy to the extent that it does? What good is the data mining doing if it can't even stop people who were already considered threats years before the bombing was even carried out? Only a fool believes attack prevention is the only reason this invasion of privacy exists anyway.

Simpleton Sen. Graham defends phone records collection



WASHINGTON (AP) South Carolina REPUBLICAN Sen. Lindsey Graham is defending the practice of collecting millions of telephone records in the ongoing war on terror.

Graham told reporters on Thursday that he had no problem with the ongoing practice, saying it was imperative in the war on terror.

Grahams said quote - "If we don't do it, we're crazy."

Later at a hearing with Attorney General Eric Holder, Graham said he is a Verizon customer and it doesn't bother him at all if his number was part of the NSA program. He said the goal of the program is to track connections between known terrorist groups and any U.S. phone numbers.
