However, the question of Pew Research (in that second link) is not
fair: "Which is more important?
A. Investigate terrorist threats;
(or) B. Not intrude on privacy (of the general public)
There is a third choice:
C. Investigate terrorist threats AND not intrude on privacy (of the
general public). We pay you people $X Billion dollars to do so.
I tend to agree with Lauren Weinsteins opinion that it is rampant
paranoia that lead us (the world) into this.

I am very grateful for mr Snowden and Greenwald to leak this. Now it is
ok for EU-commissioner mrv Viviane Reding to state that privavcy isn't a
luxury but a right.
