NSA and Wrong Targets

What’s the big deal about the NSA controversy? Why keep bringing it up? They’re just targeting foreign terrorist and enemies, right? Well…

According to an article in the Washington Post, one of the most respected newspapers in the world, reports ordinary American citizens were far more likely to have their data checked by the NSA than potential terrorists. In fact, 90 percent of those emails and others data intercepted were not those of the intended target. To their credit, some info caught by the organization has led to arrests of some very bad men, like Umar Patek. He was suspected of plotting the 2002 bombing in Bali, Indonesia. But many others files intercepted have more to with trivial things, like politics, religion, love relationships and even peoples’ deepest hopes and dreams.

This is what I and many people were afraid of. Okay, so it caught some terrorists, and we should all be glad for that part. But it seems like for every one or two terrorists caught, hundreds of innocent people’s privacy are being tampered with. What do someone deep relationship have to do with catching people who want to harm us? Meanwhile, the real psychopaths continue to plot our harm. So is this surveillance program even worth it at all?
