My issue is massive surveillance done in secrecy.
Yes, our government needs pertinent intelligence to help ensure everyone's safety. No one wants another 9-11 surprise. I can deal with secret surveillance but that should be narrowly focused (e.g. surveillance on parties that intelligence has reasons to suspect over potential terrorism). I can also deal with massive surveillance but that should be done openly (e.g. closed circuit cameras placed in public places). But I have major issues with secret and massive surveillance during peace time. And no, we are not at war -- despite Bush's so-called 'war on terror'.
Just came across today that Microsoft too provides NSA with access to encrypted files. Wasn't so long ago when Congress raked Jerry Yang (the ex Yahoo guy) over the coals for cowardice when Yahoo's Chinese operation complied with Chinese laws and handed over requested data. Well, well, well...
