An Ex-CIA Dude Just Enraged Everyone In The Government, So Watch This Before He 'Disappears'

DISCLOSURE: I don't own a tin-foil hat. I even give our government the benefit of the doubt when it comes to incompetence. I presume that when someone screws up, it's not usually an evil secret conspiracy, but rather some clown in an office thinking he'll get to move up the ladder if he does something that shows incredibly poor judgment and character. However, reporter Glenn Greenwald and The Guardian published a disturbing and eye-opening interview with NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden telling us things so beyond the pale that there is no excuse.

At 3:30, he explains how he can spy on you — or anyone, INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT. And at 7:10, he explains why you really should care about this.

UPDATE: Just FYI: It's so bad that another journalist overheard some government intelligence officers suggest that Snowden and Greenwald should be "disappeared."


This is a HUGE deal. It's not Democrats or Republicans to blame. It's everyone. The Senate and the House have known about it for years. You can read more of their enlightening and disturbing Q&A here. If you think our government should not be recording who we talk to, how long we talk to them, and where we do it, I'd really love it if you shared this. Totally your call though.
