NSA Head: “no better way his agency can help protect the US from foreign threats”

NSA: No better way to protect US than surveillance

US National Security Agency (NSA) chief says he knows of no better way his agency can help protect the US from foreign threats than with spy programs that collect billions of phone and Internet records from around the world.

Pleading with the Senate Judiciary Committee to not abolish the NSA bulk-collection programs, Gen. Keith Alexander said Wednesday that global threats are growing — specifically in Iraq and Syria — that pose what he called “an unacceptable risk” to America.


Alexander said the NSA is open to talking to technology companies for a better solution without compromising security.

Really??

I will quote tennis great John McEnroe – “You can’t be serious!”

I guess it is easier to assume every is guilty first and get everyone’s info than to do investigative work first, get approvals to search certain people’s data, and so on.
