Americans now know Big Brother is collecting and storing their phone records and to be blunt, people are pissed off. If you make or take a call, big bro knows phone numbers, where the call was placed from and to, and the duration. This program seems to be a bit overreaching when one looks at the Fourth Amendment but the SCOTUS disagrees.
PRISM is a secret NSA program in which data such as email, photos, audio, documents, Internet searches along with a plethora of other intelligence from Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Skype, along with several other companies is collected. American citizens are being told this data is only being collected from foreigners and only retrieved with a warrant from a judge.
So what is all the indignation about? Put simply, TRUST!
