Snowden - NSA workers regularly pass around private, nude pictures taken while spying

I wonder how all the individuals that "have nothing to hide" feel about this new revelation?

Workers for the National Security Agency regularly share private, intimate photos swiped from communications streams, Edward Snowden said.

The ex-agency contractor told The Guardian that many young employees with the spy agency enjoy the “fringe benefit” of passing around the provocative pictures.

This should be enough to shut them down

Even if all the other revelations aren't.

I say shut down the NSA!

Im Worried

that there's just too many many scandals and too much information about the NSA that the American people are overloaded, have stopped caring, and worse now expect it and will do nothing about it. Perfect win for the NSA their dirty laundry gets aired and the lack of any response codifies there behavior as permissible. Yay for sheeple.

What about a 'F Bomb the NSA Day'??

Just throwing it out there, maybe this is something social media could share images with to get people to like and share which perhaps creates more conversation on how unconstitutional the Patriot Act really is and how tyrannical it has gotten. Thoughts??????

Exclusive: Inside Account of U.S. Eavesdropping on Americans

Faulk says he and others in his section of the NSA facility at Fort Gordon routinely shared salacious or tantalizing phone calls that had been intercepted, alerting office mates to certain time codes of "cuts" that were available on each operator's computer.
"Hey, check this out," Faulk says he would be told, "there's good phone sex or there's some pillow talk, pull up this call, it's really funny, go check it out. It would be some colonel making pillow talk and we would say, 'Wow, this was crazy'," Faulk told ABC News.
Faulk said he joined in to listen, and talk about it during breaks in Back Hall's "smoke pit," but ended up feeling badly about his actions.

"They certainly didn't consent to having interceptions of their telephone sex conversations being passed around like some type of fraternity game," said Jonathon Turley, a constitutional law professor at George Washington University who has testified before Congress on the country's warrantless surveillance program.

"This story is to surveillance law what Abu Ghraib was to prison law," Turley said.

Who are we to judge such saddening personal deficiencies of theirs, them misfortunate public servants (who work so hard for our own safety)?

And still

no one goes to jail.

Again, I want Snowden, Greenwald, and Poitras to get everything out, but what good will all of this do if nothing happens to anyone involved in these crimes?

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

A lot of good came from and is still coming from Ron Paul's

latest two runs for President even though he didn't win. Same thing with all the beans that have been spilled by Snowden, etc and have just gone everywhere. Life is like that!!

I agree that *some* good has come from this,

in that, more "lay" Americans are on board with the fact that our Government is spying on us indiscriminately.

However, what good is that if Americans won't prosecute their own Public Officials?

If the point of all of this is to "change America for the better," how can this be achieved when the elite and their constituents control the courts/legislation/White House/Congress/etc etc?

Additionally, what pieces of information does Greenwald et al have that will "bring the US Government to their knees"? What, exactly, does "bringing the US Government to their knees" look like?

Greenwald hasn't even been asked by anyone (and stop me if I'm wrong here, I just haven't seen it) if the information he contains will put someone in jail.

This "slow kill" that Greenwald is exhibiting is not working, imo.

Don't get me wrong, i'm on board with Greenwald and Snowden, but I truly feel that time is of the essence and I'm losing hope with each new "leak" they present.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.
