Thanks, gillymor!

And, no, Ake, I'm not being obtuse. I know perfectly well what's going on. I know that the government is collecting all kinds of personal data about everyone, and I know what the potential dangers are.

But I am ALSO aware that this information is open to practically anyone and everyone, and has been and is being used by advertisers ever since the beginning of the internet and long before that.

As it stands now, I'd a helluva lot rather that this information be used by those who are trying to block terrorists from carrying out their nefarious plots that can end up killing a lot of innocent people—including me!—than be used by outfits that bury my morning e-mail in spam or constantly call me on the telephone and try to sell me insurance, change my credit card service to theirs, or contribute to their particular cause.

These outfits already have this information! It's already out there!

Ake:   ". . . why do the authorities not target sectors of the population within which some levels of terrorism might be expected……" (and the rest of that sentence is just plain stupid and insulting!).

Here's a bulletin, Ake: That's exactly why they want the information!

As far as I'm concerned, I don't have anything I feel I need to hide from the government. Hell, if they want the contents of my e-mail address book or my personal telephone book, I'm perfectly willing to give the information to them!

Everybody else seems to already have it.

And if they want to waste the time, money, and manpower to fly hummingbird-size drones outside my apartment windows, well, they aren't going to see a whole lot. A guy sitting there practicing the guitar, reading a book, writing on the computer, making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. . . .

All pretty sinister stuff!

"Gave his information to the American people..."
An idiot statement.

This also exposes the information and the methods of collection to the Chinese, North Koreans, Russians and whomever.

Since the Canadian and UK methods are interwoven by agreement, their collections are included.

It is not the information on the vast numbers of citizens of countries cooperating in the system with the NSA that is of interest to the NSA and sister agencies, but the doings of those who are using violent methods to damage our nations- that is what the system is set up to identify.

The Chinese, Russian and probably other security services are gathering the same information to protect their own interests- bombing has taken place in Russia, and I am sure the Chinese are worried about possible terrorist action in their vast and varied country.

Ding Donger writes: "Did he give his information away to "enemies?" No. He gave it away to the American people. Yet the Obama team charged him with espionage. Hence, they view the American people as the enemy."

The answer to your question is more properly, "Yes, he gave it away to the whole world including al qaeda and Hezzbolla and countless other would be terrorists who may have something in the works. This is the basis for the indictment of Snowden as a traitor." Thus your flimsy little syllogism collapses like a house of cards.

And Don, you are fighting the good fight.

Don...how can you be so obtuse?

What SW has illustrated is not a conspiracy theory, but pure and simple fact.
Our respective governments are covertly collecting huge amounts of data about our private on line relationships and storing them.
This data can be used for any purpose by any future govt, be it Democrat, Republican, Marxist or Fascist.

If the reason for this violation is security, why do the authorities not target sectors of the population within which some levels of terrorism might be expected......but I suppose that would be against your "equality" principles.

The Twin Towers terrorist attack was orchestrated by Islamic fundamentalists.

We have a garden outside our apartment window as well, Songwronger.

And these are hummingbirds. I've seen them up close. No doubts.

This woman is also tooted up about Google street-view as well, swearing that people are watching her through her windows. I checked it out and because of a couple of trees in the way, you can't see in her windows.

WHY would anyone want to spy on this woman? No perceivable reason whatsoever. She's about as dangerous as someone who can't keep from bumping into walls.

And, Songwronger, we who consider your rantings to be nothing but rampant paranoia are all suffering from Stockholm Syndrome?

You really outdo yourself!

I think it's called Stockholm Syndrome, where the kidnapping victim falls in love with the abductor.

The NSA invasion of privacy is the biggest violation of constitutionally protected rights in our nation's history, but the supporters of this arch crime seem bent on only one thing...keeping Obama's reputation from being sullied. As he walks through the shitty slough of the crime they lick his boots to keep them clean. Yummm. Taste the love.

Let me repeat a paragraph from the article I referenced earlier:

"Edward Snowden has been charged with espionage and is being denounced by American politicians and media commentators as a traitor who is spying for the enemy. But to whom is he giving information? To the American people. In the eyes of Snowden's accusers, the enemy is the American people."

Snowden gave his information to the American people, yet the government, the government-controlled media, and the 47-chromosomed Mudcat supporters of Obama call Snowden a traitor. Did he give his information away to "enemies?" No. He gave it away to the American people. Yet the Obama team charged him with espionage. Hence, they view the American people as the enemy.

Jeri, Bobert has it nailed in his post of 24 Jun 13 - 07:42 PM, just following yours.

There are a lot of truly ridiculous assertions put forth here, and there are those who are naïve enough to believe them and possibly act on them. unless they are refuted by the facts. I don't spend that much time countering these posts, certainly nowhere near as much time as Songwronger and Beardedbruce do in digging them up and posting them (often just cut-and-paste from the conspiracy theory websites), but it IS a pain in the butt.

I occasionally run into people who seem to believe anything that anyone tells them—such as the woman my wife and I know, a former co-worker of my wife's, who is thoroughly convinced that the hummingbirds moving from flower to flower in the garden outside her apartment window are government drones spying on her (and why in blazes would the government want to spy on her??).

And I have a relative who listens to Rush Limbaugh religiously and believes every word he says!

There are enough real problems in the world that people need to deal with without people like blowviators like Mudcat's resident Limbaugh clones, such as Songwronger and his buddies, seeking them out and spreading them around.

It's a dirty job, but somebody's got to do it.

I can understand some foreigner with no understanding of the U.S. constitution endorsing the lawless organization that our government has become, but an American?

The Fourth Amendment to the constitution says:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

In order to search (surveil) you need a warrant. A sworn oath that particularly describes what is being sought. That's absolute. It's in our bedrock governing document.

George W. Bush went insanely criminal with his "warrantless" searches, and then the FISA court setup was adopted. But the FISA warrants don't comply with the constitution, and they are as illegal as Bush's warrantless searches.

It is amazing to see Americans, faced with the biggest violation of constitutional rights in our nation's history, choose to side with Obama and the other elites and say that NSA surveillance is all right.

Canada does have a sister operation.
The Combatting Terrorism Act came into force on May 24. It contains new provisions not in the original act of 2001.

Canada, New Zealand and UK have agreed to cooperate with NSA.
ECHELON provides for the interception of private and commercial communications, including satellite trunk communications.

The Defence Signals Directorate of Australia (have not checked) may be cooperating, as well as the Netherlands SIGINT. In any case, these two nations are intercepting signals.

Collection and evaluation of signals began officially in 2001

I posted a similar link about the story...and in the article, Well, here: "Even though the LAPD are sticking with the speeding story, a couple of witnesses told KTLA that they saw or heard something unusual. "I was just coming northbound on Highland and I seen a car going really fast, and all of a sudden I seen it jackknife," said one witness, while another drew comparisons to an explosion: "It sounded like a bomb went off in the middle of the night. My house shook. The windows were rattling." And as LA Weekly noted, conspiracy theorists are linking Hastings to a technique called "Boston Brakes," wherein the electronic management of a car, specifically a Mercedes, can be hijacked remotely. (Hastings was driving a Mercedes at the time of the accident.)"

....and this quote: "Just hours before the crash, he wrote that the FBI was interviewing his "close friends and associates" and that he was going to "go off the radar for a bit" to work on a "big story." He warned his colleagues that if the feds came knocking, they should have a lawyer present before they started discussing their news-gathering practices. He CCed his friend Staff Sgt. Joseph Biggs, who shared the e-mail with KTLA. "It alarmed me very much," he told the TV station. "It didn't seem like him [...] and I just had this gut feeling that really bothered me."

Yes, exactly. The information can be used against you.

Take the case of Michael Hastings. He died in a car wreck 5 days ago.

Michael Hastings - wikipedia

In 2010 Hastings did a piece about General Stanley McChrystal for Rolling Stone magazine. The article led to Obama firing McChrystal.

So Hastings was capable of doing TRUE journalism, and the day before his death he stated he was going to break another big story about the NSA. He also told friends he was going into hiding because the FBI was following him.

Then he had a car wreck in Los Angeles and died. The Los Angeles Police Department said there was no evidence of foul play, but a witness to the crash said the car was going full speed before it hit a tree.

And then there's this:

Full remote control of ALL modern U.S. market cars PROVEN

A team of hackers from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Washington conducted a study which has proven that all cars equipped with antilock brakes sold in the U.S. can be hacked via remote control and have their brakes entirely disabled with the car in motion, throttle revved, and remain fully operational with the key removed and the car in park with all driver input entirely ignored. -

http://therebel.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=657564:full-remote-control-of-all-modern-u-s-market-cars-proven

So, if you're the NSA, and a reporter with a proven track record of breaking big, embarrassing stories threatens to release damning information about you, what do you do? You know WHERE the reporter is going, what kind of car he's driving, you can track him in real time with GPS, you can hack into his car, disable the brakes and rev the engine to full speed...

The possibilities for sinister use of information are endless.
