Remember, whether it's immigrants or Guantanamo prisoners: if it's good enough for Them, then it's good enough for Us.
"The only prisoners sent to Guantanamo were people known or believed to be members of al Qaida, or its affiliates."
Wow, I knew you were a shill but I wouldn't expect you'd stoop so low as to defend who all was captured and sent to gitmo. "Believed to be" al Qaeda? You mean, like this man and his three children, who were sent there because his surname *sounded similar* to that of an al Qaeda member?
He didn't deserve gitmo, but you do, as you have a career of whitewashing and justifying the suffering of innocents.
Care to tell me why the NSA cares about the por anyone looks at, if not to discredit them?
NSA and DEA team up to share data
NSA and FBI team up to monitor American Muslim leaders (who've committed no crime)
As for the retroactivity, do you seriously think that dragjnet data-gathering like the NSA practices on every single one of us is meant to be used *proactively*? Are you going to tell me it'll just be used to target terr'roists?
Every single time, like clockwork.
"This isn't new information!"
"Well they're a spy agency, what do you expect?"
"I don't care who reads all my text messages!"
Even though this isn't representative of what most users will post later on in time.
It's almost as if a bunch of people are employed to squat on Snowden threads and post the same old reheated bullshit!.. Oh wait, that's totally what's happening.
No, the NSA probably isn't proactively spying on you. What they ARE doing is building up a retroactive database of our information, so that its friends can comprehensively destroy us or our reputation at a moment's notice. Hooray for you that you want your own privacy to be destroyed--feel free to hop right off that cliff, I'm sure everyone else will follow.
Pretty sure I've explained all this to you before, alen, but I suppose that doesn't matter since you're reading from someone else's script.
In this case it's a large swath of people being spied upon, and not those open-carriers you so detest. Because every gun owner should be spied on extra according to your petty grudge, as if that's sone sort of poetic justice?
Good to know you won't stand up for those who've done you no wrong, let's not be friends.
