    The encryption key was likely provided by a private company that was strongarmed- errr, I mean “persuaded” into surrendering it to the NSA.
    Take a look at CryptoSeal and Lavabit- they both shut down their services rather than allow the NSA to spy on their users. It’s sad that lately you have to look outside this country for methods to ensure your freedom.

    The spooks at the NSA probably have toilet paper with cameras to make sure your wiping correctly

    What do you mean “strong armed?” The NSA simply set up a dummy front company and sold her the phone claiming it was secure!

    At first i didn’t knew about this (i watch U.S. news, not the local German ones, perversely). But right now things are REALLY moving along, i get updates in my mailbox every hour.

    I think Ms. Merkel is pretty P-Oed about this. First Bush trying to neck-rape her, now Obama getting all creepy on her. Pity Hillary is no longer SoS, they could have a long talk about men and what they – unthinkingly – do to women…

    Hmmm, spying that’s been going on for decades, going back to the OSS, and it’s suddenly a “surprise”? Friend or foe, the intelligence community, wrold-wide, has always been after what other countries, and AT HOME, have been up to. Anyone remember J.Edgar Hoover and his decades of picking HIS “enemies”, how about “Tailgunner” Joe McCarthy?


    P.S. the FBI was long ago granted “permission” by Congress to spy on Americans, while the CIA was only supposed to go overseas. Don’t like the current situation? Look to the “Patriot Act” and the formation of “Homeland Security”, with 32 NEW AGENCIES or DEPARTMENTS to pry apart any “closed aspects” of your life.

    Oh grow up. Everyone spies on everyone, friend and foe alike.

    Supporters either of the two major political parties can whine about how it’s the other party’s fault, but the sad fact is that nearly every congressman voted in favor of the Patriot Act and the increased powers of the NSA.

    Agree that the Patriot Act has been a disaster for freedom and independence, but this cartoon perpetuates a misunderstanding between “listening in” and “collecting data.” Trust me, Average American, nobody thinks actually listening to your calls is worthwhile.
