So its the NSA's fault Americans are ignorant of what the NSA has been doing since the 50's?

Clapper lied. Not that Congress is going to do anything about it.

Well that just merited a new entry in your file, subby. Hope you're happy.

Will equivocate for food and mortgage.

Technically speaking, telling less than the whole truth is still lying.

Who the hell cares? You idiots got exactly what you asked for and now biatch about it? I've fought tooth and nail over Internet privacy whenever it came up. I organized rallies, mass congressman mailing, petitions, etc. Still the quivering a scared masses wanted more security, more government control, and were unwilling to take their own security into their own hands. Now here we are and they are "shocked" and "disgusted" with the NSA even though THEY ALLOWED IT! This is what happens when your a spineless coward who goes crying to big brother you feel scared. I have zero sympathy for you.

I don't protest or organize opposition anymore because the majority of Americans are idiots and get what they want. Whenever I see another threat to privacy, I just shake my head and figure out how to keep it from impacting me too much. I'm still a rebel, but I've shifted gears into becoming as off the government/big business grid as much as I can. I pretty much shop all locally owned businesses/farms and raise chickens for eggs/meat. The next step is hunting, gardening, and an aquaponics system to take over the majority of our food needs.

The further off the grid you are, the easier it will be to disappear you when they feel like it

The reporters who investigated this story mysteriously vanished later that day.  Numerous unconfirmed eyewitness accounts that they had sacks put over their heads and were then stuffed into the back of a black SUV were proven false when FOX news correspondents caught up with the eyewitnesses at the morgue where they were being treated for self inflicted gunshot wounds to the back.  Notes pinned to their shirts stated that the whole thing was just a publicity stunt for the upcoming movie "The Expendables 3", that they were sorry for any confusion or distress they had caused.  The "witnesses" declined further comment.

/admit it, you know somebody who would believe it and post the hell out of it on derpbook

Is anyone actually surprised by this crap anymore?
Accountability is not a worry at the government agencies anymore. They thumb their collective noses at us and laugh down their sleeves at the notion we will ever take measures to reign them in.
We are reaping what we have sown. If we want change it will cost us. In time, in effort, in getting involved.

But we totally should trust them when they allude that Assad used chemical weapons, because when have they ever lied to the American public!

Depends, are you still failing hard at trolling?

The whole thing is farmed out to contractors anyway so there's always that plausible deniability thing anyway
 
2013-09-03 09:03:02 AM
from the article:" In its foreign intelligence mission, and using all its authorities, NSA "touches" about 1.6%, and analysts look at 0.00004% of the world's Internet traffic. "
And just where  the fark does the NSA get it's authorities to snoop on anybody outside the US

When you say "they", are you implying that Doctors Without Borders is part of the executive branch of the U.S. government?

Have you stopped drinking coffee? I guess we can't always live up to our log-ons.

It isn't lying, per say.
It's just the omission of uninteresting details that we do not feel are important to the overall story.

How would a doctor know complicated things like chemicals weapons and the medical effects they can cause, it's not like their a chemist. They are a doctor, they know doctor things.

Oh, well if MSF were the ones to provide the intercepts that had the alleged orders for Syrian forces to don NBC gear and the intercept of the Assad commanders freaking out that chemicals were used.  Can I get that from their website?  I would like to hear them for myself.

Or do you mean the fact that chemical were used, which is known.  The unknown is who did it.  That sort of matters whey you feel you have to 'punish' somebody.  I'm sure MSF would rather we restrain ourselves from indiscriminately bombing what we think may be the bad stuff that is nestled in residential areas.
