    thousands of miles away to create hundreds of millions of people who hate our guts because we're killing innocents.

    Look at Egypt, Yemen, Pakistan, Afghanistan... in all these nations people would, some places by large majorities, approve of the US, not ten years ago.

    The entire "war formerly known as on terror" combined with propping up the dictatorships of the Middle East and Central Asia, is the reason anyone would even think we need the NSA and PRISM in the first place.

    There's your Catch-22. We cause the enemies we then have to "defend" against. (We all know PRISM etc is, ultimately, about establishing complete control over US citizens much much much more than about catching terrorists.)

    I say it's even money that al qaeda has its agents making both US military and intelligence policy.
