    collecting all this metadata was to be able to connect the dots in order to protect us? How is Syria (not on the friendliest of terms with the West) not on a watchlist that would stop these kinds of dual use purchases, especially once the conflict started?  Guess businesses get a free pass and only people are under that kind of scrutiny.  

    Now the UK and the US look like they were rushing to strike Syria in order to cover their tracks.  Fair assessment or not, as a Westerner, it sickens me that the death of so many people, especially the children, may be because we free citizens haven't given our politicians the firm kick in the pants they obviously deserve.
