    that goes on between intelligence agencies. Each one wants to be better at spying on its own citizens than its peers. If the Venezuelans have really been able to figure out how to record all its citizen's calls in real time, they will be the envy of the NSA et al. As an American, I have to admit that despite my misgivings I am proud that the US is on the cutting edge with this stuff. It's been 40 years since the Apollo missions, and it's cool we are showing some technological muscle again.
