Wait 'til you hear the one about RSA taking $10million from the NSA to promote vulnerable security.
This is much much worse than many of us will admit. Despite all the other problems we face, this is the one that has to be tackled first. If we can't bring the out-of-control surveillance state to heel, nothing else can ever get really better.
And don't buy for a second the Obama Administration's press release about their "reforms" of NSA data collection. They're just trying to head off the serious challenges that are about to start coming down from the courts and from congress.
For a minute, I think we're going to have to put partisan politics aside to tackle this common threat: government surveillance.
