As you probably know, the site NSA.gov was brought down for quite a while. The NSA blames "internal error,"
as opposed to an outside hacker attack. If you scuttle around the various tech/anarchist sites
, you will find that many people question the NSA's assurances. I find it odd that this outage occurred just before the "Stop Watching Us" rally in DC (which I cannot attend, due to a cold) and in close proximity to the failed premiere of the Obamacare site. Maybe Angela Merkel
finally got really, really
In related news, Hillary Clinton
is positioning herself -- with Clintonesque caution -- as the candidate willing to say in public that NSA surveillance may have gone too far.
The day is coming when the rest of the world will retaliate with a trade embargo. Nothing else will end American hubris.
