Weekend Chillout - The Police State

Stunning revelations of the extent of NSA snooping this week, although every serious IT professional and Vladamir Putin knew it was going on for at least 10 years - but it was nice to see the facts out in the open, if only to say "I told you so" to those who trust their masters.
