Michigan Republican Justin Amash has some balls
Well he has balls, I'll grant him that.
That big database of everyone's communications contains *his* comms too. his families, his friends, his doctors, everything.
If they can't find enough dirt in that lot that can be used to smear him then he's a saint.
Same goes for everyone else in the House of Representatives, General Alexander has everything about you and can simply run queries on the data without requiring a warrant because it's all in his department under his control.
I hope you all have even 10% of the balls that Snowden had.
Because in Britain we have William Hague, whose signed off on mass surveillance, police, MPs, ministers, teachers, doctors, lawyers, the lot, all their data is captured and stuck in a database, and William Hague thinks that's fine and completely within the right to privacy because GCHQ are all saints and everyone they spy on is a potential terrorists.
I wish someone in the UK had the balls to stand up to to the NSA chief who told GCHQ to 'record it all' as if he was the boss.
