Damn. I guess I'll cancel my shotgun order then. Or maybe downgrade to glock.
When* one of them gets fucked in the ass it will be a lesson to the rest of them not to make waves and to stick to the program.
*assuming it hasn't happened already. There sure don't seem to be many waves being made despite all the shit that has come out so far, so perhaps it has.
It's not "Amateur Porn" if neither/none of the parties being watched/recorded don't know that they are being recorded.
And who is going to be doing the prosecuting/burning of the NSA?
Anyone that makes moves to do so will be burned by the NSA first with any and all the dirt they have on them.
They are good examples of material that the NSA would legitimately not want getting out into the wild. The release of that type of information would indeed be detrimental to the safety and security of the USA as a whole.
But it is not the type of information that Snowden has released so far though. The releases so far have revealed the NSA to be up to some pretty nasty shit so I am not inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt that he only has information that would hurt the USA left. It will almost certainly hurt the NSA, but that is not necessarily a bad thing from what we have seen so far.
But they would have been better off if THEY had been legally able to carry a gun (not all of his victims were children, some of them were people whose job it was to keep those children safe).
Are you actually arguing that if Norway had similar gun laws/ownership levels to that of USA then Breivik would have been stopped/shot before he could kill and injure some or most of his victims?
It sure as shit doesn't seem to work out that way in all those instances in the USA.
where is that exactly?
I do believe that has already been thought of and implemented. I am not going to google for that shit and find out though.
The support staff are either full of shit (which is the most likely scenario) or breaking the law themselves by not reporting this "jail time category" porn.
And if they are more concerned with keeping their job than reporting it they are in the same low-life category as the execs accessing the stuff.
I'd count staying the fuck out of Iraq as a pretty big win.
Wish I could say the same for my country.
Add to all that that it will take someone with either a crystal clean history without a single secret they wouldn't mind being exposed to the world*, or someone with some massive balls to bring charges against people with the highest levels of access within the organisation that literally knows EVERYTHING about EVERYONE.
Sadly there doesn't seem to be a person fitting either of those descriptions willing to put it all on the line.
*Just thinking on that further. Not only must they have a crystal clean history, but I would guess anyone they care about should have a clean sheet as well. I guess it really isn't surprising that we haven't seen any formal charges even being whispered about let alone anything officially being done.
Wrong. Read the Vienna Convention if you are seriously interested in it. Espionage from the embassy building is explicitly forbidden. And the belief that the embassy is US territory is very much wrong. All that the Vienna Convention says is that the embassy and all the property belonging to it are immune to search or seizure, and that agents of the host country may not enter without consent of the embassy staff, that's it.
So just like the 4th amendment then? Strange how the Germans would think the US government would just ignore that then.
*Destroyer not frigate
You have a source on that? I can't find that response reported anywhere.
Even if the Navy do appreciate it as a training exercise, I'm sure they could plan an exercise with similar benefits at at time that doesn't involve dragging the entire crew of a naval frigate away from leave with their families in the week before Christmas.
