When you see snide quote-tweets of this from the boot-licking think-tank crowd, look at the ratio and remember that even if they're loud, they are in the minority.

Being pro-war is not smart, cool, or sophisticated, and their performative outrage doesn't change that.

Everyone said SOPA/PIPA was "definitely" going to pass.

We stopped it.

Everyone said the FBI would never back down demanding a backdoor to the iPhone.

We made them.

Everyone saying the EARN IT Act will definitely pass?

We will prove you wrong.

There is nothing more grotesque than a media pushing for war.

RT from Evan Greer (@evan_greer)

This is a bombshell story.

And honestly you couldn't ask for a more crystal clear example why legislation like the EARN IT Act that undermines encryption is a terrible idea.

It's not just a threat to marginalized people's "privacy" it's a threat to safety and security.

So, CIA is basically saying "trust us—this is legal, but we aren't going to tell you what we're doing."

And two privacy hawk US Senators are saying, "If CIA were made to reveal what they're doing...we'd all agree, it's not kosher."

The CIA has secretly collected data on Americans for years without a warrant, say Senate Intelligence Committee members.

Lawmakers report "serious problems" with searches, which are "outside the statutory framework." The CIA has refused to disclose how many people were spied on.

If you're willing to accept that a government agency isn't abiding by the rule of law, that's not realpolitik. That's a character flaw.

Rogue agencies like the NSA, FBI, and CIA are a more serious threat to liberty in America than the enemies they claim to protect us from.

We know that abuses are rampant. Bringing abuses to light and holding the perpetrators accountable is worthy and important work, unlike being a nihilist edgelord who can barely be bothered to change their socks.

RT from Eva (@evacide)

The first person to roll their eyes and tell me how everyone already knows the CIA is spying on all Americans all the time is welcome to choke on a printed out copy of the "...and yet you participate in society" meme which I will shove down their throat.

You are about to witness an enormous political debate in which the spy agencies and their apologists on TV tell you this is normal and OK and the CIA doesn't know how many Americans are in the database or even how they got there anyway.

But it is not ok.

RT from Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald)

The CIA is a criminal organization. Their interference in US politics is particularly pernicious.

Maybe news outlets should stop hiring all of the people who run this agency to help "analyze" and report the news? Maybe journalists should be skeptical of their planted stories?

BREAKING: Newly declassified documents reveal that the CIA has been secretly conducting massive surveillance programs that capture Americans’ private information.

RT from Emma-Jo Morris (@EmmaJoNYC)

There was a man named @Snowden who tried to warn us this was going on but he was called a “traitor” and had to flee his country.
