Big Brother is Watching You!

by Thom Hartmann posted Jul 24 2012 1:31PM

In an interview with Current TV on Monday, former NSA senior official Thomas Drake revealed that the NSA is not just monitoring international phone calls and emails as its been given the authority to do, but also domestic calls and emails.  As Drake said, “a key decision [was] made shortly after 9/11, which began to rapidly turn the United States of America into the equivalent of a foreign nation for dragnet blanket electronic surveillance.”

Drake admitted that data is being collected on virtually “the entire country” and then being inserted into a computer algorithm to pick out suspicious chatter.  It’s been long speculated – and even known – that the government was abusing its powers and spying on innocent Americans during the Bush administration.  Unfortunately, since the whole nation has been whipped into a fear of terrorism, not many seem to have the courage to speak truth to power.

Listen to me Monday through Friday LIVE from 3 PM to 6 PM on WWRL 1600.
