NSA Audit Confirms it Breaks Privacy Rules Regularly

As inside auditing showed, the NSA broke the law thousands of time by its surreptitious surveillance methods. It delved into the private conversations of both US citizens and foreign nationals in the United States. This went way beyond the normal perimeters of its jurisdiction. Already several documents had been leaked to the public by Edward Snowden, a former NSA staff member. Even a prominent person from the NSA spoke of how it was a human agency operating in a complex milieu and therefore sometimes it found itself on the wrong side of the divide. As for the special court convened by the government for addressing this matter; it has next to zero faith in the NSA. 

The internal audit exposed 2776 such events in which unnecessary meddling in the lives of citizens and alien nationals took place. Furthermore, there has been a definite rise in such activities in the past two years. Edward Snowden meanwhile has taken asylum in Russia. As for the court which is to look into these charges, it has its hands tied behind its back since it has to rely on evidence provided by the government. President Obama has made a promise regarding transformations in transparency. Yet we all know that talk is cheap and that deeds speak louder than words.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
