The National Security Agency is under fire for spying on
heads of state overseas. NSA did not identify all the leaders, but France, Germany, and Brazil are upset about it. Apparently, they never got the word that they should have no expectation of privacy whenever they use their cell phones or the internet. The NSA has issued a statement that they will not monitor foreign leaders’ conversations unless they need the
information. Here is how that will work:
1. The NSA and CIA monitors foreign leaders’ conversations.
2. They gather the information.
3. They conduct an analysis of the data to determine if they need it.
4. If they don’t need it, they just give it back.
5. If they do need it, they just say that the leaders should have no expectation of privacy whenever they use their cell phones or the internet. Meanwhile, I am still waiting for the NSA or CIA to return my e-mails that “disappeared” over the last couple of years. They know which ones.
