"internet of Things, Project No. P135405 The NSA's blanket collection of data is by far an invasion of privacy and cannot be condoned or accepted. Everything is done in secret; there is no recourse for citizen objection to any of these outlandish methods being perpetrated under the pretense of "National Security" The agency heads have been caught in numerous lies with no consequences and they act like this is the new "normal". Hogwash, and everyone involved should be ashamed at the lengths information is being gathered, stored and can be manipulated to suit whatever purpose they may concoct. Edward Snowden exposed a tremendous cancer within a government agency and should immediately be exonerated. Instead, liars are lauded as heroes and truth to power is quashed. What about transparency, truth and the Constitution being upheld, now that's a concept no longer in fashion.
