    sorry, didn't mean to sound condescending, i was just trying to get the point across that the notion of a CIA agent looking up the facebook secrets of random people because now they have the special power to look at your "SPRING BREAK '09!" pictures is..... farfetched.


    inasmuch as this is an issue, it is an issue of whether or not we are spending enough on this.

    Yes, well that'd be absurd. It's abuse of power that concerns me.

    Awesome! I hope they nab the terrorists and their supporters who are using the Internet to communicate their nefarious plans.

    Come on, folks. This ain't like warrantless wiretaps or having spies listen at your bedroom door. These are public forums. Might as well complain about the police looking at a College bulletin board for ads which say "Cheap Speed and Pot. Dorm Room #420"

    Just so you know. The CIA is not as scary as it once use to be. The CIA has to report to the DIA or the Defense Intelligence Agency that is run by a military general. So really if you think this was the work of the CIA think again.....

    Why would it make you feel bad in the first place? If this was about "listening in" on email or phone calls, then I'd be among those complaining about it, but this is about scrolling through public forums for signs of terroristic activities. I fail to see a problem.

    God Bless America!

    Look by the government's definition. Everything is public so we should just bend over and accept them as our rulers.

    Firstly, I have the power of anonymity. You don't know who I am. My account is not attached to my name. The CIA would know who I was if they so wished. Also... (just so y'all up there know, everything I say is plausibly deniable as comedy and trolling of noobz)

    ALLLALALALALALAAAAAA ACKBAR!!!!!

    The CIA sends people child porn.

    This isnt really surprising really, this is why you dont post too much private stuff on the net.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
