Yeah, so what's next... invasive proctology exams to discover it was just a bagel you hurriedly ate at the airport just moments prior to going through the scanners, or perhaps covert cameras hidden in your toilet?
Either way, it seems to me that the NSA is going well beyond "reasonable means" to protect US citizens when it infects millions of PCs worldwide to 'so-say' seek out threats. I mean, what does it stop short of... decompiling peoples bodies looking for nanotech that can destroy tall buildings with a single cell? Or not?
For me, this sets too dangerous a precedent, and when it is reported the British Intelligence Agency assisted in this endeavour, it raises the question of how just many 'friendly' governments are complicit in this incessant search for power that has turned many innocent lives upside down. Has the Australian government assisted also... and what sort of covert shit is it doing to 'protect' us Aussies?
Yeah, I know, break out the tinfoil hat, but we all know how trustworthy governments are... and how they've started every war since recorded history. And no, I'm not paranoid! It seems the NSA tore that page out of the dictionary and has taken ownership. I mean, infecting millions of PCs worldwide... surely there has to be a crime in there somewhere. If it were you or I, any private citizen doing this, we'd be charged with cyber crimes and locked away for a very long time.
Now I'm not suggesting that US citizens give the NSA the finger and say "Up yours" as they go through airport security, but I do think there needs to be some public backlash at what's going on and the excessive means... something to make them and the government more accountable before citizens of the US and the world lose all their rights... cos yeah, what happens there eventually infiltrates the rest of the world as other power hungry governments follow suit.
Oh and before I go, sleep tight tonight, knowing the NSA spy satellites, which can see through cracks in curtains and/or blinds, have got you covered.
And for those people who don't bother with bedroom curtains or blinds because they have no neighbours who can see in, the NSA wishes to thank you for your contribution to its extensive porn library.
