from what is really going on.

The American public (including you) do not know what's going on with the NSA. Some want to know but apparently others dont, preferring to live in a comfortable denial bubble.

And, then have the gall to tell us they're doing it to "protect" us from the likes of the Chinese because they would spy on us.

37. Are you kidding me? You think East Asia (mostly China) isn't spying on us? The Chinese government

called John McCain to express "concern" over a letter he sent to the new President of Taiwan. Problem was, the letter was never mailed. It was only a draft copy still on McCain's campaign computer. the Chinese hacked into both McCain and Obama's campaign computers. Have you looked at some of the new military hardware China has "invented"? It looks remarkably similar to the United States'. So similar, it's as if they took the plans right off of our computers. Apple has revealed to have found worms/spyware in 20% of their computers made in China. When Israel had those F-16 engines "stolen" from their bases where do you think they went? Good money is on China. (Most thing Israel sold them). Like the kids say, "Don't hate the player, hate the game."
