    Thumbs up

    FYI

    For those who might not have seen the FrontLine program or who don't do television, the first segment of the documentary can be viewed on the FrontLine web site. Part 1 is about ~1hr 50min. (See link above.)

    Interesting, about the basic life history of the global digital spying activities, including how they rose out of the ashes of 9/11, how they got supposedly justified, who justified the activities, and who worked to make the existence of the activities public. Part 1 ends at the point Snowden gets into the picture, covering everything up to then.

    I found it interesting. But it wasn't anything that was not already known for the most part other then who actually did the string pulling etc... I find it interesting how some of those people had the reservations they did and still somehow found the stuff legal and good for the country

    It came across to myself that they know it was at the very least probably illegal. They did not care in the least.
