George W. Bush Defends PRISM

“I put that program in place to protect the country. One of the certainties was that civil liberties were guaranteed,” Bush told CNN in an interview airing Monday. “I think there needs to be a balance, and as the president explained, there is a proper balance.” – George W. Bush

My thoughts are, if this has been in place since 2007, and it is for safety and security, why on Earth did the bombings at the Boston Marathon happen? Our government can not be trusted, period, and should not have this technology at their disposal.

The bombers I mentioned a second ago were on watch lists and weren’t supposed to be allowed to fly back to the United States. But they did. And they killed and maimed people.

There is no such thing as security, if something’s going to happen it will happen. We should not be forced to lose our Fourth Amendment rights under the false guise of security and safety. Ever.

This is unacceptable wholly, and should not be allowed to ever happen. Period.
