The NSA, the FBI and the Brits Have Been Spying On Us For a Very Long Time

For over 40 years, it seems. The Brits (GCHQ) have been spying on us and then, doing an end-around the Fourth Amendment and American laws, GCHQ passes the intercepts to the NSA and the FBI. Presumably, GCHQ monitored its own citizens directly.

So fuck all of that shit about illegal wiretaps and search warrants and the rubber-stamping FISA court. The Feebies and the NSA have been getting everything they want, anyway. They truly are the American Stasi.

(H/T)

Presumably, that, since I'm writing this post on Friday, a lot of the readers here may be more interested in boogying down the road for the weekend. So I'm going to schedule this for Monday morning.
