+ - FBI whistleblower: Feds spy too much on us

Submitted by coondoggie
coondoggie (973519) writes "The U.S. federal government conducts way too much domestic spying on citizens, by too many federal agencies and targeting people based on their religion and political activity Famous FBI-whistleblower-turned-ACLU-attorney, Mike German, says. “We've documented intelligence activities targeting or obstructing First Amendment-protected activity in 33 states and DC,” he says. He says that citizens need to be aware of the enormous cost of all of this surveillance and realize that “ there's no evidence any of it actually make us safer. We've sacrificed our privacy for no security benefit.” In fact, citizens can’t get a full handle on how much money is being spent on domestic survellience, as budget information has been labeled classified for one of the big programs, the National Intelligence Program"
