Response to snooper2 (Original post)

7. So, snooper2, what I gather from your post is:

You're a techie -- whoda thunk it? But I guess your username is more significant;

You have no problem with blanket electronic surveillance under blanket warrants;

You think the NSA relies on Safe harbor provisions (which your post didn't define,
but correct me if I'm wrong) that require ISP's to cooperate with lawful eavesdropping
investigations in return for not being liable for any user content found in
the course of their investigations, be it criminal, libelious, or terrorist activity.

You disagree with Barton Gellman's continual drip drip drip of new information
from the preceding interviews with both Snowden and other intel experts who
all corroborate Snowden's information which he obtained as a low level leaker

...BECAUSE IT IS PUBLICALLY KNOWN TO EVERYONE WHO WORKS IN THE IT INDUSTRY, ESPECIALLY INTEL.

And the American people are being blamed for being kept deliberately misinformed,
knowing that the media have created a climate of ignorance, uncuriosity, conformism
(hatred of "hipsters" and "provocateurs") and anti-intellectualism that leaves even liberals
proudly proclaiming that they don't read newspapers, which if they did, they would have
read about all this sh*t years ago. But the politicians and rulers, knowing they could
rely on stupidity, deny what's in the paper unless it comes from an authoritative source.
