There seems to be a lot of confusion about what the NSA is actually doing.  Are they reading our emails?  Are they listening to our telephone calls?  Do they target American citizens or is it only foreigners that they are targeting?  Unfortunately, the truth is that we aren’t going to get straight answers from our leaders about this.  The folks running the NSA have already shown that they are willing to flat out lie to Congress, and Barack Obama doesn’t exactly have the greatest track record when it comes to telling the truth.  These are men that play word games and tell lies for a living.  So it would be unrealistic to expect them to come out and tell us the unvarnished truth about what is going on.  That is why it is so important that whistleblowers such as Edward Snowden have come forward.  Thanks to them and to the brave journalists that are willing to look into these things, we have been able to get some glimpses behind the curtain.  And what we have learned is not very pretty.  The following are 21 facts about NSA snooping that every American should know…

As for #14, meet Binney a former NSA mathematician who created the software to snoop on the former USSR but the NSA has now used his work to snoop on all of us

 

 

 

#14 The NSA is constructing the largest data center in the world out in Utah.  It is going to have about a million square feet of storage space, it is going to cost about 2 billion dollars to build, and it is going to take about 40 million dollars a year just to pay for the energy needed to run the facility.  It is also being reported that it will have the capability of storing 5 zettabytes of data.

But... either you are saying they are or they aren't. If you are saying yes, which I'm guessing you are, then it isn't conspiracy. I'm not being confrontational on this either. I just care for everyone's privacy no matter what within reason.

That guy is just shilling his book.  WTF should anyone listen to him?

If you actually came up with reputable sources, people might actually take what you post seriously.

SMH.. and you are a professional  with counter references of...? because...? he is more credible then you.. sorry. just throwing a comment out doesn't qualify you as a reputable source to refute anything at this point

 

+blank that's the point. he stated it started in 2001.. bush.. it is now out on the table to a point under Obama.so.. nothing has changed. that's the point.. where this is taking us

 

is he schilling his book? maybe.. but look at the context of what he is saying. he is basically an early version of snowden at this point.
