I spy with my little eye





 

I spy with my little eye



The big story around here these days is that America have been spying on civilians in European countries without informing the government. It all started when Norway found out about it, and then other countries started looking into it and found that Americans had indeed been spying on civilians in their country.

But there was one thing America didn’t count on: A nation just as terror-paranoid as them. Denmark to be exact. There the government found out about the spying and sent out Danish agents to spy on the American agents. :XD:

For those who forgot, the woman with the hat is Estonia. And it is of course Sister Denmark spying on America.

Why is America spying on every Nordic minus Iceland? Why does Iceland get to escape being speed on?

@txag70 Oh yes, the bush administration f**ked up. But I think it's important to look into the actions of agents to make sure they where only doing what they where told to do. Their orders where bad but that's their job.
But as I mentioned there have been many cases of individuals in the NSA abusing their power and going further than permitted. And the government has admitted on more than one occasion to listening to phone calls and reading emails of people who where up to three steps removed from a phone line or email that they suspected where terrorists.

@Bonnefeta Just to be clear on the facts here the data collected was metadata: meaning that the actual content of the message or phone call or email was not collected by the NSA. The NSA could not read the emails because only metadata was collected. And even then, they had to get warrants from FISA courts to do so. (this ought to be done through civilian courts, I concede that.) I do not defend the actions taken but I think people are trying to shoot the messenger here. This is all a result of massive privacy invasions as a legacy of the Bush-era government that need to be taken down immediately.

@txag70 Well you can't blame them for doing their job, but I personally don't really have much love for them after all those cases of NSA agents stalking their pertness or people the wanted to be their partners, hacking phones, reading emails, stealing bank details, that sort of thing.
As it was said so well by Jon Stewart "I just met you, and this is crazy, but these are your bank details so I suggest you go out with me, or I will continue to monitor your activities"

My visit to Denmark in 2012 was relatively dizzying, as I did not expect to see as much surveillance/police state as I did...I certainly expect fear mongering, jack boots carrying assault rifles in NYC, London or Paris, but never expected that in the Nordic countries. It was a grim reminder of how much hypocrisy the headlines read..."Denmark the Happiest Place on the Planet" etc. yet also willing to sacrifice privacy and freedom for "security"? Quite confusing...

Don't blame the NSA. I know people who work there and they don't really have a choice on what they do. They're doing what Congress tells them to do. Repeal the "Patriot" Act NOW!
