Reasonable questions. Lack of transparency is a problem. Why do you believe, or not?

Australia, Canada, Great Britain, New Zealand all cooperated with the USA in the Echelon program,  “… a global system for the interception of private and commercial communications” mostly targeting signal intelligence (SIGINT) since the 1960’s.

Think about it. Would you buy encryption software from any of these countries and expect that you would be safe from NSA backdoors?

Moral Responsibility Has No Place in This Place

Bradley Manning pretty well demonstrates the fallacy of total secrecy that provides NO outlet for responsible, moral people to object to what this country is really doing. The right outlet is one that allows access to Congressional representatives. Without that the only alternative is to go to the press.

If it were treason, the leakers would be getting paid. They aren’t.

If everything is secret, than nothing is secret.

Talk about paranoid !!!

In other words…

Ex-CIA Boss Hayden is Insane.
