Re: USA has a problem
"disclosing a secret program (some claim illegal) used for anti terrorism but potentially abused/abusable. "
And THIS is where the actual lie is!
This is not an "anti-terrorist" program!
This is purely a massive, gigantic, probably the biggest by orders of magnitude SURVEILLANCE program this planet has ever seen.
The US CLAIMS they built it to protect themselves against terrorism, but it is NOT an anti-terrorism tool... it is purely a surveillance tool, and no matter what they claim it's for... it CAN be used for anything.
Explosives can be used to make fireworks AND bombs. Nuclear fission can be used to make electricity AND bombs. Rockets can be used to send a man into space AND to make missiles...
And the NSA surveillance program can watch out for terrorists... AND everyone else on the planet...
Historically, EVERY single time a tool was invented that had the potential to be abused by those in power to retain their power... it HAS been abused. Why would this be any different?
I'd be willing to bet everything I have that this tool has ALREADY been abused multipls ways and multiple times...
No doubt about it.
