Why does the general public support a government who creates all these spy agencies and turn them on their own citizenry to protect them from enemies the same government created?<quoted text>
All it means is that no system is foolproof. What is accomplished by the general public being privy to all national security programs? Our enemies or terror groups are being educated in our weak points. Nidal was suspect; however, do we arrest every person who is acting weird ? He was a US citizen in the military.
The Boston bombers story is intriguing and I'm not convinced that the Russians actually warned anyone; perhaps they were sent on their mission by the Russians, and furthermore may be connected to the Syria debacle. Anyone who trusts Putin and the Ruusians is insane.
How about just not making enemies?
