Thread Name: BS: The NSA Scandal/Snowden
Subject: RE: BS: The NSA Scandal/Snowden
First of all, I wasn't shocked at what our intelligence people were/are doing... If I were in their jobs I might construct something similar since the programs were devised to link phone numbers between folks the intelligence people know are the bad guys and folks here in the US who are/were talking with these bad guys...

I don't hold that against them... I don't feel my freedom is/was threatened by that...

But let's say that I did feel my freedoms were being jeopardized by this program...

I would have made a copy of my evidence, trusted it to an attorney for safe-keeping and taken the original to my Congressman with a warning that if I ended up dead that the file would be released...
