Hi folks, I have wondered about this.... If you have a product like TrueCrypt and get a National Security Letter telling you that you can't talk about it, does that include your attorney? I seem to remember that someone decided to sue NSA over this... Just curious...

What I have noticed is that there is a story in the media every damn day about the over reach of NSA and arghh..people are outraged. Oh it's horrible, etc etc. Amazingly enough, no one seems to want to do anything about it. Where are those stories? Where is the demand for congressional oversight? We get the NSA we deserve because we the people are doing nothing to reign them in.

It's always the same: "What does Edward Snowden deserve?". How about "what should we do about NSA's over reach?". Lost in this discussion seems to be any kind of seriousness about reigning in NSA. At least in the 70s when the CIA was caught engineering coups they had to have congressional oversight placed upon them.
