  •  You'd have to be profoundly naive... (0+ / 0-)

    to honestly believe that the intelligence operations of Israel, the UK, and our other allies aren't active in the U.S.

    We're "allies", but we all have our own national interests, and as long as that's the case we'll always need espionage to stay ahead of the game.  This has been true since the dawn of man... it's just not supposed to be talked about, and we must feign outrage any time it surfaces.

    Snowden unfortunately is blurring spying on our own citizens with spying in general...  a leap which will lose many reality-based progressives.

    Let's keep our eye on the ball, guys.

    •  And when we catch them, we jail them. (1+ / 0-)

      We don't shrug and say "we do it too" ;)

      Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?
