Legal This story is getting bigger and bigger. Even though most Americans probably already knew, it is now official: the United States government, through its National Security Agency, is collecting the communications and data of all American citizens, and of non-Americans using American services, through a wide collaboration with the large companies in technology, like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and so on. Interestingly enough, the NSA itself, as well as the US government, have repeatedly and firmly denied this massive spying on Americans and non-Americans took place at all.

is it just to protect us from stupid terrorists that are not technology savvy enough to hide their messages and intentions?

In case you didn't notice, "terrorist" is the term that is applied to anyone that the U.S. government doesn't like. That also means citizens of the U.S. themselves.

Tech savvy people are among the top of the U.S. "cyberterrorism" watch list, trust me.
