HackThisSite.org News: Big Brother Actually IS Watching You

by: HackThisSite Staff, 11:06 pm Thursday June 13th, 2013

Unless you have been living under a rock this past week, news of the NSA spying programs has made more headlines than Casey Anthony and Anthony Wiener combined. In this short time, the leaker, Edward Snowden, has come forward, information on the NSA projects PRISM and BOUNDLESSINFORMANT have been disclosed, and even our Palestine-terrorizing ally Israel has been named participatory in our domestic spying programs. Not only that, but it has recently come to light that U.S. citizens worried about climate change or energy independence are effectively domestic terrorists worthy of being spied on. Through all this, the U.S. government has been preparing cyber-weapons, and President Obama has claimed this is necessary, provoking Germany to accuse the Obama Administration of employing East Germany Stasi tactics.

ForwardProgressives contributor Manny Schewitz authored an excellent article on this. Furthermore, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has started a petition against the NSA's domestic spying program. Plus, if the government has nothing to hide, why is it angry a whistleblower invaded their privacy?

One hell of a week, huh? I think we all owe someone an apology.
