summer of snowden, recap

An excellent recap of the Snowden revelations and the extent to which the US government is spying on us all, Americans and non-Americans alike. Worth reading in full, details past abuses of power by US government, then describes current state of affairs. Also details NSA’s creative use of legal terminology to expand its purview as well as outright non-compliance.
