Even if I thought the NSA was somehow protecting America (which I certainly do not), how could I ever trust a security agency that has such lax SECURITY that it allowed Ed Snowden to walk out with so much sensitive information? Reminds me of the true story of the Falcon and the Snowman, anyone remember that? That episode also involved the NSA being compromised from within, and in truly idiotic fashion. I suggest everyone read James Bamford's books on the NSA, starting with the first one from the early 1980's (which I read back then), in "The Shadow Factory" he reveals most of what Ed Snowden "leaked" but several years before! Wake up people.
