the NSA has decided to get into the act. T. Top the turtle and other animated characters push the NSA's propaganda to the next generation. Maybe these are the unintended consequences of Snowden's actions, maybe not.

Civil libertarians are up in arms, and child psychologists are also weighing in as they compare the tactics of the NSA to McDonalds placing toys in Happy Meals. With Cy and Cindy advising children, '“there are people out there who don’t have your best interests in mind — stop and think before sharing private information, especially on social networking websites.”, hopefully children will talk with a liberty-minded person before sharing with the NSA.

"Anti-Propaganda' Ban Repealed, Freeing State Dept. To Direct Its Broadcasting Arm At American Citizens"

"The US government has a bit of a PR problem at the moment, thanks to Ed Snowden's leaks and a decade-plus of general antipathy towards its constituents' rights and liberties growing out of its War on Terror. "
