The NSA Is Building the Country´s Biggest Spy Center

What is your take on this Ephrem?

Interesting find.

Here’s a rebuttal to it, just as interesting.

It’s unavoidable that modern technology will be used for intelligence gathering.

We should remain aware of the fact that privacy does not exist anymore.

You could argue that these centers are necessary to maintain state security, but the ease with which technology can/will be used for other purposes comes only as a surprise to the naieve.

Your observations further highlight the need for a state that takes seriously the truth of rights being endowed inalienably by our creator BTW.

The NSA along with a few other agencies may not exist or would exist on a much smaller scale if the U.S. government stayed out of other nations’ business. Imagine the lives and money that would save.

This rebuttal is silly, its basically saying well the Congress Men, President funded it so it must be a good idea, or else why would they have done it.

Cause you know the Government has never made a bad decision…

Regardless the NSA Wired Article is a fascinating Read(read it about 3 weeks ago), anybody who is interested in IT or Secret Agency should definitely read it.
