  •  I really don't care about Glenn Greenwald. (8+ / 0-)

    So he's writing a book?  Big deal.  

    Don't dislike Greenwald, don't like him.  Don't read him much.  He has a point of view.  Sometimes I agree, sometimes not.

    I do think the trade-offs made since 9/11 that have eroded privacy rights need to be seriously looked at.  I'm not an absolutist; I don't blame Barack Obama for it all.  But this is a real issue.  

    The Greenwald, Snowden stuff distracts from the real issue.  I fear Americans will endorse the tradeoffs made withoyt much thought (as they have since September 2001 and the adoption of teh Patriot Act.  I don't think that will be the end fo America.  This is not a "soft totalitarian" state as a German paper proclaimed.  But I do feel we lose something important when the national security state grows to this degree.
