 The NSA IS Reading Your E-mails


The London Guardian's Glenn Greenwald revealed in a July 31 exposé that the NSA has indeed been collecting the full text of every American's e-mails without a warrant under the “XKeyscore” program, flatly contradicting the claims of congressional opponents of the Amash amendment last week.

The Amash amendment would have denied the NSA the ability to snoop on Americans without a warrant or National Security letter under Section 215 of the Patriot Act. The amendment by Michigan congressman Justin Amash failed by a mere seven-vote margin in the House of Representatives. In the wake of the vote, Amash has promised to sponsor legislation to ban the NSA from collecting telephone and Internet data on American citizens.

Perhaps in every email we send from now on we should include a presentation of the Gospel :)

Excellent idea! Reminds me what Corrie ten Boom used to do when traveling in a communist country. She would look for hidden microphones and then preach into it!

I do find it unnerving to think some gov official is snooping in my emails, but I also know they must be awfully bored because there is nothing there that would interest others. Yes, I like the idea one should start adding inspiring, entertaining tidbits to ones emails...

BTW, is there any way any technology can snoop into snail mail apart from physically opening it?

You better believe that sites like this one are in their radar too. Almost everything cyberspace

If the NSA is snooping on SK hope they are listening to the sermons for salvation. I doubt they would find the forum too exciting.
