The government claims that it is spying on Americans to keep us safe from terror.
Is that true?
Well, let’s look at the facts:
As one writer puts it:
“If we know of illegal administration spying on journalists and other non-suspects, and we know of pre-9/11 surveillance, then we for all intents and purposes know that these are not programs designed to fight some foreign terrorists threat.”
Of course, the fact that the government heard the hijackers’ plans from their own mouths – and yet did nothing to stop them – confirms that the spying was never about protecting us.
