The NSA gathers information, 5 billion cellphone records per day (at least hundreds of millions of devices), around the world, which allows it to track the movements of individuals (anyone with a cellphone!) and “map their relationships”. The Washington Post calls it a “mass surveillance tool”; I call it another gross violation of privacy.
I am not keen on our government thinking it appropriate to track the movements of any person on the planet with a cellphone. Do you think this is a good use of American tax dollars? We the people are funding this and a host of other programs that are getting us in serious hot water with the international community. It’s eroding trust that prior generations sacrificed to build. Over time, regular Americans will be associated with what our government is doing, and not in a good way.
