The NSA leak case is just a metaphor that describes the entire US Government in a single word – incompetent. USA – the Super Power more like the Super Mouse! Super Mouse - the entire diplomatic, law enforcement and intelligence community of the United States cannot corral one 30 year old computer hacker!
It’s not our politicians who govern today. It’s a multi-million member Civil Service that is anonymous, unelected, and largely unaccountable. They can confiscate our property or throw us in jail if we don’t pay and obey! Didn’t we rebel against King George III for just the same behavior?
