I no longer feel at ease holding a telephone conversation. I’m afraid of being bugged. It hits me when I say words such as ‘Afghanistan’ or ‘Syria’. Then I think: Oh, this will trigger the NSA computer programs in Maryland.
This week Obama announced that he’s going to investigate what his security agencies are up to. This president really puts your mind at rest. What else is he not aware of? What his generals are planning? What about his Treasury Department?
Everyone is up in arms about tapping the conversations of heads of state, but you can’t convince me that NSA employees don’t check up on the web and telephone activities of their favourite celebrities.
