Patriot Act Interpretations Would ‘Stun’ Americans

TheYoungTurks Network

Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Mark Udall (D-CO) recently made a statement that Americans would be “Stunned” if they knew how the American Government is interpreting, applying and using the Patriot Act. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss the comments from the Senators and try to figure out why President Obama would allow this to happen.

…With the construction of a new National Security Agency eavesdropping, data collection,  and analysis facility in Utah, a program called Stellar Wind is now fully underway.  This program now means, very simply, that secure and private communication now seems rather irrelevant…

…Apparently everything is now subject to scrutiny and analysis and everyone now is a potential security threat. This is especially alarming because citizens who should raise no interest for law enforcement and national security agencies, will now be subject to warrantless and unjustified scrutiny and investigation.

Anonymity, and the safety it can bring to both author and reader alike, seems to have been destroyed…

…This is tyranny, and the wicked and bitter fruits of tyranny may only be just over the horizon…

Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force! It is a dangerous servant and a terrible master.
George Washington (1732 – 1799)
