When Will Surveillance Reform Stop Being Just ‘Cool’?


When Will Surveillance Reform Stop Being Just ‘Cool’?

Faiza Patel

Last week, former National Security Agency Director Michael Hayden declared that he was “cool” with the recently enacted USA Freedom Act, which reined in government bulk collection of Americans’ phone records. His characterization of that program as “little” is no doubt accurate. Information from the archive of documents released by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has revealed many other programs that pose equal or greater risks to Americans’ privacy.


The government should get out of the surveillance business and let insurance companies protect us from terrorists.


Those who believe that anything has changed relative to US government spying on everyone and anyone has rocks in their head.
