Well, all of us already knew so I don't think it has surprised anyone... but I'd like to know opinions of TED community, are you comfortable with fact that USA Gov. is continuously collecting your personal data?

Closing Statement from Kareem Fahim

Majority of people are annoyed by this 'data collection'. Western Govs., defenders of 'freedom' 'democracy' and 'input_word' are mere bunch of hypocrites. Although it is shocking how some people are defending NSA and these faceless entities... (maybe they are 'trolls' or NSA paid users...).

  • Jun 14 2013: How is Snowden a threat again, if the NSA said they are not spying on us? Joking of course, since the NSA has since retracted their lie. The media owned by the same scum that run the NSA and every other 3 letter word in Amerika, including the FED, the IRS, CIA, FBI, etc...will continue their nefarious ways and nothing will change. Amerika is quickly becoming a police state like Britain. You would have to be crazy to want to live in Britain, with all those sick psychopaths wanting to snoop on every little thing. Snowden you are a hero and for that we know you will be persecuted since these are very dark days for Amerika. The bad guys have taken control and rule the day right now. I don't see fat, lazy people shutting off their idiot box anytime soon to fight back either. If they do it will be over some stupid issue like abortion or guns or other meaningless trivia, but certainly not to protect the Constitution, which made Amerika strong until the filth undermined it.
