Oklahoma Congressman Lankford Discusses Snowden (basically calls him a commie)Submitted by fiodax on Fri, 07/12/2013 - 01:53
Talked with our congressman, James Lankford, at a town hall he held recently to get his take on the Snowden affair. Turns out he doesn't understand technology (thinks that since Snowden only had access to "architecture" that he didn't have access to data, which is kind of funny if you work in IT, policy controls don't equal technology controls) and he completely trusts nontransparent political controls to protect your private data and thinks we should too.
He also called Snowden a communist, in a thinly veiled way (it's right at the beginning of this video).
Over all it's just pretty scary to listen to...
