U.S. Security Agencies Are Out of Control

US Security Agencies

Ivan Eland: Many recent indicators point to a U.S. national security bureaucracy running roughshod over the sad remnants of the founder’s republican vision. As in the Roman world, empire is gradually snuffing out the republic.

Roots of Surveillance America

Joseph Palermo: The documents Snowden chose to share with the world have exposed the behavior, attitude, and culture of the NSA. The revelations alone about spying on allied heads of state, such as Brazil and Germany, have already caused real damage to bilateral relations between the U.S. and those countries. The NSA is clearly out of control.

Protesting Domestic Surveillance

Dan Bluemel: Restore the Fourth’s demonstration was the second of its kind in LA concerning Fourth Amendment rights since the NSA’s actions were made public in early June.

These Prying Eyes

Walter Brasch: With the ubiquitous use of computers, every person who ever bought anything online, or even searched for anything online—product or information—can now be identified, their web addresses stored for use in target marketing campaigns.

snooping

Mary L.G. Theroux: If we today make Edward Snowden the story—if we ask, “Where’s Snowden?” rather than “What’s the U.S. intelligence community doing to Americans’ civil liberties?”—we censure our whistle-blowing protectors as traitors, renounce our rights to privacy, and sanction a government completely “unchained” from the Constitution’s checks.

Freedom of Too Much Information

Tina Dupuy: Having no privacy and arbitrary puritanical laws is a recipe for a theocracy. We have no confidentiality yet petty prudes wield legal authority in the government.

Ted Vaill: It is ironic that we cannot adequately protect against deranged U.S. citizens and residents from buying assault weapons and shooting up our schools and malls, but the NSA and its operatives are being allowed potentially to conduct the most intrusive inroads into the privacy of all U. S. citizens and residents. Why is this?

Brent Budowsky: Ironic that when the final legacy of President Obama is written, it will include his championing of a surveillance state of a kind that that his predecessor, President George W. Bush, established over the objection at that time of Barack Obama.

Berry Craig: Mum was the word from Republicans like Sensenbrenner when their guy in the White House collected the same sort of phone call data. The Bush administration said it was crucial to the “war on terror.”

Would You Believe 14 Million Emails Were Lost by the Bush White House?

karl-rove

Believe it or not. You don’t believe it? You’re probably right. More likely it’s 28 million e-mails that are lost or missing. How could this happen? All White House communications not regarded as top secret or considered intelligence sensitive, are supposed to be put in the archives. Instead, the RNC computer delete keys must be [...]
