NSA breaks into Yahoo and Google data servers worldwide
With each passing day, we are learning more about how far the U.S. government and its intelligence agencies have gone to collect surveillance on the people of this country and the world. All these critical revelations can be linked to the whistle-blower Edward Snowden.
The top story in today's Washington Post is "NSA taps Yahoo, Google links." The Associated Press headline put it more bluntly: "NSA broke into Yahoo, Google data servers."
Send an email today and tell Congress that it must abolish and ban the bulk collection of data on the telecommunications of the people of this country and the world.
If you sent a letter previously, send another one today. We have to keep the pressure up.
The surveillance apparatus is so out of control that this issue requires more than the tweaking or amendment of existing legislation.
We believe that the people of this country and the people of the world want this entire surveillance state to be dismantled. All loopholes and windows need to be shut in any proposed legislation so that this bulk data collection spy program is ended completely. It was constructed in secret because it is illegal and is despised by the majority of the people of the country. Its existence is a negation of democracy and our most cherished freedoms, including the right to privacy.
One leaked document revealed that the NSA was taking in 180 million records per month by directly tapping into the fiber optic cables of the two telecommunications company. This collection is on top of the earlier revelations that the NSA Prism program was collecting the "metadata" of essentially every email and phone call in the country.
The New York Times quoted a networking expert who suggested the NSA could have, like a high-tech thief in the night, physically inserted devices in or onto the cables.
Throughout this whole scandal, the NSA has repeatedly lied to Congress and the American people. Now is the time to act.
Ed Snowden did his part in exposing the truth and now we must act to make the change. We can do it!
