Mass surveillance simply does not work
The clip above is from the European Parliaments hearings on mass surveillance. Swedish Pirate Party MEP Christian Engström asks US Representative Jim Sensenbrenner if NSA surveillance has brought any terrorists to justice.
And here you have it: NSA global mass surveillance has led to NO convictions of actual terrorists in a court of law.
There has been one case, where a US cab driver tried to send USD 8,000 to a terrorist labeled organisation in Africa. He was convicted. But no real terrorists have been caught and convicted.
