  •  More oversight and regulation is what is needed. (2+ / 0-)

    Actually spy satellites are only one small part of the picture. Human Intel (ie. gathering intelligence via person to person) is always the most important part. These methods and opportunities change constantly as we find new sources to exploit and old ones are discovered or dry up. Technology is good, but it's also the easiest to spoof or evade. Once you know it's there then people change their routines.

    Keeping anyone under control is a problem in all organizations. How do we know the Corporate CEOs, Wall Street bankers, Hedge Fund managers, Congressional Representatives and other high level powerbrokers in and out of the government aren't corrupt or breaking the laws for their own agendas? This is a constant battle for us all. We can only keep regulating, doing oversight and setting new laws and boundaries in policy to prevent these elements from getting out of control. It's a necessary and secret job the NSA does and we can't just shut it down because we fear something might happen. We can just keep the pressure on them and put Congress to work in making laws to prevent these problems as well as doing their oversight that has been lacking.
