The Guardian: “But they obviously had zero suspicion that David was associated with a terrorist organization or involved in any terrorist plot. Instead, they spent their time interrogating him about the NSA reporting which Laura Poitras, the Guardian and I are doing, as well the content of the electronic products he was carrying. They completely abused their own terrorism law for reasons having nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism: a potent reminder of how often governments lie when they claim that they need powers to stop “the terrorists”, and how dangerous it is to vest unchecked power with political officials in its name.”
So, it looks like UK agencies are now working with the NSA to intimidate reporters.
It’s getting pretty disgusting.
Our once great nation needs a new name. I’m thinking The United States of Terror.
Clearly the terrorists have won. Our own country is no better than the creeps we’re trying to stop.
I would not be surprised, in the least, to see acts of domestic terrorism rise. People hate being mistreated and crap like this is enough to push rational people to the breaking point.
If it does happen it’ll be our own darned fault.
