NSA: Revealing how many Americans we’ve spied on would violate their privacy

In a letter (PDF) recently sent to Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Mark Udall (D-CO), the National Security Agency’s (NSA) Inspector General explains that he cannot provide an estimate of how many Americans the agency has spied on, because doing so would “would itself violate the privacy of U.S. persons.”

That letter was first obtained by reporter Spencer Ackerman at Wired. It claims that even attempting to produce an estimate of how many Americans the agency has spied on is “beyond the [Inspector General's] capacity,” and that “dedicating sufficient additional resources would likely impede the NSA’s mission.”

You would have to be out of your mind to believe the excuses they pull out of their asses. The goobermint has some seriously bad spin doctors. If the object is to keep the thinking people entertained, it's working like a charm.
It's their right not to know we've been spying on them.

So what's the friggin' difference?

I hope all superpowers/big nations stay the f**k away from ol' Finland
for all foreseeable future. They all seem to develop in the very same fashion,
no matter what official "ideology".

The forefathers in the States knew this universal truth and put checks and balances in the Constitution, and if that didn't work there is the right to bear arms.
The checks and balances have failed miserably now that politicians are banking representatives, but the right to bear arms has so far kept them from rounding up the "undesirables" for another round of "the final solution"

They want a number? Ok, I'll start the count.



Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
