    More NSA Secrets Revealed

    Journalist Glenn Greenwald's new book No Place to Hide hit shelves Tuesday. In it, Greenwald tells the story of how he came into contact with former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, and his months of reporting on the some of the NSA's most coveted secrets.The new book also contains a trove of new NSA documents that were released for the first time today. RT's Sam Sacks breaks down this new information being reveiled about the NSA.

    Yup! 6 billion a month! 74 million in Poland! So much so that the NSA admits that they are collecting so much more so that they can handle, yet they continue to do it. Literally NSA is(was) the big brother of the world! Another document shows that the NSA focused on Venezuelan oil, Japanese trade, and Mexican energy issues. Big brother of the world!

    And you don't think that the information should be collected and mined to the extent possible?
    Zhat seems to me to be a very valuable instrument. Probably we need to manage it better and install more robust and legitimate controls of the use. But in general? Good stuff.

    No, the **** hit the fan when Snowden revealed they have been/still are spying on American citizens in CONUS.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Greenwald was Colbert's guest last night, and it was a terrific interview. Glenn was at his most focused and most eloquent.

    That is something else and my statement applies. Of course the government is not allowed to break the law. And of course the persons responsible must be identified and punished. But that does not mean we should forego using extensive data mining. It only means that we need to structure government better.

    I fully expect other countries to try and spy on us, and I fully expect my country to try and spy on them. The only thing we did wrong was get caught imho
