This article is really interesting and I learned a lot from it. NSA is international while FBI is just US

Chelsie DeBus's comment, April 25, 2014 7:39 AM
I think that is kind of cool because I didn't know that the NSA was for around the world spying. I knew that the FBI only spied on the United States. I think that the National Security Agency is doing a good thing and spying on everyone. They need to know what is going on around the world and in the United States alone.

I continue to be amazed with how much spying is going on for each and every one of us. I am glad there are people watching out for us and making sure that our safety comes first. However it also kinda creeps me out sometimes knowing how much they know.

All-Pervasive NSA Surveilliance Impacts All of Us | community broardband networks

All-Pervasive NSA Surveilliance Impacts All of Us | community broardband networks | Snowden - whistleblowers | Scoop.it

We continue to oppose the federal government's foray into creating a high tech surveillance state where the National Security Agency effectively has unlimited power to spy on Americans. The New York Times has released an op-doc embedded below that offers good reasons all Americans should be concerned, even if most are not doing anything they believe needs to be "hidden."

 

We previously discussed how community owned networks help to prevent against both corporate and federal government spying in this post.

NSA surveillance critics to testify before Congress | Guardian.co.uk

NSA surveillance critics to testify before Congress | Guardian.co.uk | Snowden - whistleblowers | Scoop.it

Congress will hear testimony from critics of the National Security Agency's surveillance practices for the first time since the whistleblower Edward Snowden's explosive leaks were made public.

 

Democratic congressman Alan Grayson, who is leading a bipartisan group of congressman organising the hearing, told the Guardian it would serve to counter the "constant misleading information" from the intelligence community.

The hearing, which will take place on Wednesday, comes amid evidence of a growing congressional rebellion NSA data collection methods.

 

On Wednesday, a vote in the House of Representatives that would have tried to curb the NSA's practice of mass collection of phone records of millions of Americans was narrowly defeated.

 

However, it exposed broader-than-expected concern among members of Congress over US surveillance tactics. A majority of Democrat members voted in support of the amendment.

 

Grayson, who was instrumental in fostering support among Democrats for the the amendment, said Wednesday's hearing would mark the first time critics of NSA surveillance methods have testified before Congress since Snowden's leaks were published by the Guardian and Washington Post.

 

"I have been concerned about the fact that we have heard incessantly in recent weeks from General Keith Alexander [director of the NSA] and Mr James Clapper [director of National Intelligence] about their side of the story," he said. "We have barely heard anything in Congress from critics of the program.

 

"We have put together an ad hoc, bipartisan hearing on domestic surveillance in on the Capitol. We plan to have critics of the program come in and give their view – from the left and the right."
