NSA Spied On Pornography Habits

This is one of those things where I am OK using this against an enemy, but not on regular citizens.

I understand the need for surveillance – but when does it go over the line? Is it a program problem, or a people problem? In other words – should the program be scrapped or is the program OK but the people running the program are suspect? I think the program is OK – but should be run very tightly. That is very sensitive info. It shouldn’t be used politically or without some sort of warrant. Targets should be on an official list before being under this type of surveillance.

Top-Secret Document Reveals NSA Spied On Porn Habits As Part Of Plan To Discredit ‘Radicalizers’

The National Security Agency has been gathering records of online sexual activity and evidence of visits to pornographic websites as part of a proposed plan to harm the reputations of those whom the agency believes are radicalizing others through incendiary speeches, according to a top-secret NSA document. The document, provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, identifies six targets, all Muslims, as “exemplars” of how “personal vulnerabilities” can be learned through electronic surveillance, and then exploited to undermine a target’s credibility, reputation and authority.
