NSA Director Defends Spying Policy

The director of the NSA has said that there is no better methodology of getting the terrorists among us than to track the telephone calls of Americans. Though it was an invasion of privacy yet it was a necessary step too

According to the General, this was the least bothersome way of gathering the necessary data about people. He also spoke of how it was a crucial step in defending the United States against its enemies. 

Though it was a feeble attempt at justifying what was essentially against the law of the land, General Keith Alexander was adamant. He said that if anyone could come up with a better idea he or she ought to suggest it. Unfortunately, there were none. 

The issue really came out in the open after eight Internet companies forwarded a joint statement saying that the government ought to prevent any breach of confidentiality in the future. 

Alexander said that while many phone records are surveyed by the NSA each year, only a few hundred actually get examined. These too are only scrutinized due to some very genuine suspicions that the NSA execs had against them. 

The General furthermore said that given the threat that already existed to the United States from several terrorist organizations, it was simply preposterous to even consider ending these surveillance programs.
