HBO Documentary about Edward Snowden.

I watched it last night thought it was pretty good. Pretty fvcking creepy some of the shit the government can do. Also interesting how Obama has expanded the programs under his watch which is pretty much the opposite of what he campaigned to do.

Did you watch it? If so what did you think?

One of these days people will understand that Presidents literally have little to zero say in any of our intelligence operations.

I haven't seen it yet but something tells me this entire Snowden thing is one big ruse.

I think presidents have little to say on most operations.

Not to say they have no power but I think we credit them with far more than they deserve both positively and negatively.

I would say Presidents probably have affect over intelligence than they do the job market or gas prices.

You can buy a small theatre nuclear weapon off a website in the statedept... with only 2 approvers.   And NONE of the approvers are names you would recognize.

Of course Presidents have a say in this shit.  They set the overall tone and goals.  Then they leave the room before the sausage is made.
