	That's right. The nsa's 'job' is not legitimate. 

	AND, more important, it is a scam. 

	Do you seriously believe that if there were any real terrorists
	out there, they would plan their actions using gmail accounts,
	or even the pentagon's fake anonimity network aka Tor? 

	Do you actually believe these alleged 'terrorists' could be
	THAT stupid? 

	The US government spies on ordinary cattle, aka subjects, not
	on terrorists. Also, they probably spy on 'foreign' businesses
	and so serve the interests of american fascist 'free market'
