Once again, there's little about the NSA programs that surprise me any longer.
The National Security Agency has built a surveillance system capable of recording “100 percent” of a foreign country’s telephone calls, enabling the agency to rewind and review conversations as long as a month after they take place, according to people with direct knowledge of the effort and documents supplied by former contractor Edward Snowden.

Wonder about the application of that technology here at home...no wonder, really. Seems like the data is out there, just sifting through it is an interesting and expensive undertaking I would think. And, what our tax dollars are being used for. Right?

"Land of the free" I think its time that line is deleted. The money spent on surveillance tech/resource in the US, is enough for a whole country BNP. The US people are such great folks, but something changes as soon you look at the politics people,.. those are just not the same folks.
