NSA Spying Hurting the US Economically and National Security

US NSA Criminal Spying Angers Both Friend and Foe

Our enemies now have more reason to be our enemies and our friends now have more reasons not to be our freinds. Hopefully the Europe and Asia will develop search engines as operating systems that are impervious to the criminal spying of the NSA. I'll feel bad for the Americas who will lose their jobs to foreign competition but hopefully they will find employmet working for law abiding companies outside the US.

Below are links to news articles that explain in greater detail how the criminal spying by the NSA will hurt Americans economically and weaken our national security.

German minister: Stop using U.S. Web services to avoid NSA spying

Germany is one of the most privacy conscious nations in the world, with data and privacy laws stronger than any other in the EU. And amid the NSA spying scandal, the country's top security chief has warned users to simply avoid U.S. companies. Will that work?

Amid NSA spying scandal, the gloves are off for EU's justice chief

No longer is the EU standing for U.S. lobbying and policy pushing. The EU's Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding is back in the trenches. The gloves are off, and she's fighting back.

EU to vote to suspend U.S. data sharing agreements, passenger records amid NSA spying scandal

The European Parliament will vote — ironically of all days, on U.S. Independence Day on July 4 — whether existing data sharing agreements between the two continents should be suspended, following allegations that U.S. intelligence spied on EU citizens.

Another leaked batch of top secret slides relating to the U.S. National Security Agency's PRISM data collection program sheds further light on how non-U.S. data is collected from various tech firms, and how under law, U.S. data is filtered out — albeit not always.

ZDNetGovWeek: NSA chaos continues, big tech fights back

The ongoing chaos that is the NSA story continues. Google, Microsoft, and Facebook try to get permission to tell the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. That doesn't work out so well, and all we get are aggregated numbers and more aggravation.

The real story in the NSA scandal is the collapse of journalism

A bombshell story published in the Washington Post this week alleged that the NSA had enlisted nine tech giants, including Microsoft, Google, Facebook, and Apple, in a massive program of online spying. Now the story is unraveling, and the Post has quietly changed key details. What went wrong?

ZDNetGovWeek: More NSA fun, tin foil hats, Google slapped in UK, and more

There's nothing more fun than government news, and nothing that puts humanity's foibles in clearer light. This week, the NSA story continues, we gently mock those wearing tin foil hats, Google's Street View is once again in view, and all around the world, governments are keeping us entertained (and worried).

Privacy is dead: So what if you friended the NSA?

The National Security Agency is better than Santa Claus. It knows when you're sleeping. It knows when you're awake. It knows when you've been bad or good. Not that most Internet users will care.

How did mainstream media get the NSA PRISM story so hopelessly wrong?

Last week's bombshell stories by The Guardian and The Washington Post accused some of the biggest names in tech of willingly working with the NSA to give up your data. It now appears that those stories misread the technical details and got the story wrong.
