Comment 3 NSA contractors "We told you so." (Score 2) 743

Thomas Drake, William Binney and J. Kirk Wiebe

The NSA has created an irresistable treat for the least moral people in government. Oversight and controls will periodically fail for reasons slashdotters and sysadmins understand well.

Recently
        *Spied on reporters
        *Prosecutors pretend evidence was gathered with a warrant.
        *NSA lied to congress about what was collected.
Previously
        *Threatened U,S reporters with death,
        *Influence the U.S. elections Watergate.
        *Electronic surveillance Martin Luther King, John Lennon, Elvis, It is alleged MLK was blackmailed and the letter demanded he commit suicide before christmas.

Funny
(Unless your former spouse/boyfriend is violent)

            *Appalachee "Love-Intelligence"

This answers (for me) why Snowden left the country.

Just great! I can jailbreak my kindle read any format now...

With a binary written by someone i don't know and am forced to trust because i can't write or disassemble code. (21st century illiterate. )

Do i trust Amazon to make the kindle less user friendly and progressively more expensive with user lock-in or.. $Random programmer to be honest without anyone reviewing the source code?

I Would love the convenience of a kindle but for this question.

The Stasi would of loved this anyone can be monitored on a moments notice. Nixon would of loved this Jack Anderson? not so much. W. Mark Felt Watergate's "Deep Throat" and Washington Post reporters would have found it difficult. Reporters everywhere will need a new way to protect their sources. Maybe a website you can upload encrypted documents to...

Any ideas?
