Re: Complicit

I prefer to be spied upon by the Russians and the Chinese, it is much safer: Because they won't have me extradited to a secret rubber-hosing facility over "terrorism", they can't put me on no-fly lists, they can't seize my assets or interrupt SWIFT transfers, they won't drone my house over me getting the old mobile number of that Kebab-shop dude that went to Syria, they won't send their rent-boys in my local law enforcement to impress tact and decency on me over something I said -- and so on and so forth.

Putin, Russia and China have so few powers regarding "normal people", living outside China and Russia's influence, that it hardly matters to anyone what they do.

If they screw over the NSA, of the DOD it has Zero impact on anyone except the people with eggs on their faces.
