36. I don't see anything to support Snowden's claim that the NSA is spying on everybody.

The Verizon warrant is legal and something we already knew about.

The info that we spy on other countries? Who could have guessed?

The 'rules' you refer to specify exceptions under very strict conditions. This is evidence that the NSA spies on everyone? When that first came out, someone posted that maybe the NSA leaked it because it actually makes them look good. Of course, different people see different things.

A software tool that 'pointed to' data collection in the U.S. Not much to go on there, is there?

The Tempora project is the only one that's troubling to me and I would like more information about it.

Here are Snowden's wild claims.

Snowden claimed he could personally spy on the President's email. Makes you wonder why he didn't snatch an email to prove it to us.

Snowden claimed the NSA had 'direct access' to the world's Internet providers. All the companies involved say that's bullshit.

Snowden claimed the NSA can watch our thoughts form as we type. Any evidence they are doing that? No.

Snowden claimed the NSA is downloading the Internet on a daily basis. Any evidence? No.

Snowden said he "saw things" but he has never said what that means.

He was a Systems Administrator, not an Intelligence Analyst, so he was never in a position to "see things" in the first place. If he somehow gained access through hook or crook, why didn't he get something to support his claims?

There is a reason China didn't want him, Russia doesn't want him and now even the Wikileaks attorneys don't want him. http://www.democraticunderground.com/10023101737

So then I'm right about being wrong.
