Internet & Networking From The Guardian:

A top secret National Security Agency program allows analysts to search with no prior authorization through vast databases containing emails, online chats and the browsing histories of millions of individuals, according to documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The NSA boasts in training materials that the program, called XKeyscore, is its "widest reaching" system for developing intelligence from the internet.

This is not PRISM - but a different system. The slides are damning, as always.

It validates claims made by Edward Snowden, and makes it clear that US government officials have been lying all along. There's no court order required for any of this - in a supposedly modern democracy. Crazy.

As Morgan pointed out, kwan_e's claim is not supported by actual poll results.

Which means that if you are right and the poll results are faked, assuming that they come from corporate media (so Washington Post, yes, EFF, no), then the gun nuts do support the NSA based on the fact that kwan_e's claim is bogus.

Does your head hurt yet? ;-)

What do you suppose it means that the EFF poll agrees with the Washington Post? Are the independent sources and big media both wrong because they agree with each other? Then what conclusion would that imply?

Can this be twisted a just little bit harder to reverse the logical outcome of it one more time?

Give it a shot.
