The culture of secrecy in Washington has become absurd.

An odd thing is happening in the world's self-declared pinnacle of democracy. No one -- except a handful of elected officials and an army of contractors -- is allowed to know how America's surveillance leviathan works.

This is how ManBearPig became so popular. Mass propaganda, planting of false facts and illegal intelligence from our NSA and targeting by the IRS. You Know. The same way Obama got re-elected. Cheating.
We should have a re-election. Obama cheated as badly as Tiger Woods.
Your pig-daddy is not 'so popular. I never heard of him.

From the article:
"We are not customers, we are a product to be monitored, packaged up and sold on to the highest bidder.

"The development of this kind of more detailed profiling is exactly why we need stronger consumer privacy protection. People still don't have a real understanding of just how much information about them is being collected online and it is why until stronger laws are enacted companies will continue to keep people in the dark."

One of the bidders is governments (not just the US gov.)
