But what does “protect” mean in the context of the NSA? If what the NSA was doing is beneficial to Americans, then why did they lie to Congress about it earlier this year  Americans would gladly say “Yes” to extensive surveillance if they saw it as truly beneficial. The fact is, the ones controlling the intelligence and military communities knew that they had a sinister ulterior motive, which is why they purposely lied to the public about it. A government need not lie to its citizens about an operation that benefits them.
Listening to top brass explain to Americans that no major privacy info was captured and stored is like listening to a major auto executive explain how a car stereo is made. These .intelligence leaders don’t know how phone and internet usage info is captured and stored. The fact is, it is easy to store content along with metadata as long as you have enough data storage space. And with storage smaller and cheaper, the Utah facility (and any others) can easily compress and stored content that is cross-referenced to your phone number and call times. Don’t believe the false flag. Vote these deceivers out of office and stop being brainwashed into thinking you have to vote for the two-headed party machine to count. Presidents routinely say one thing during campaigns, then do whatever the highest and most powerful bidder instructs them to after they win the election.
Was Saddam truly an enemy, or was he manufactured into a convenient enemy so that the West can mow down one Islamic country after another?
Who said Syria is butchering its own people? If you examine non American and non British press, the rest of the world is not entirely convinced of that, and in fact evidence from the other side shows the rebels are running false flag strikes to then blame Syria so as to give America the pretext it needs to go in and destroy the military and innocent victims with “accidental” drone attacks.
An attribute of a conspiracy is not whether or not parts of the operation are in plain sight. The ultimate objective is kept secret until it’s too late to stop it. If a bank robber walks into a bank with an accomplice in plain clothes, looking like any other customer, does that automatically mean there is no conspiracy to rob the bank of money? They look harmless until they unveil the next stage of their operation.
We speak of the government as one big monolith, but keep in mind it is made of many agencies, committees, special task forces, etc., encompassing hundreds of thousands of people (perhaps far more). Some groups will have core competencies that exceed others. Some workers are high school grads, while others have more advanced degrees. Some are beholden to domestic and international special interests. Some contain double agents for foreign nations (thus, a kind of conspiracy for a foreign entity), and so on. So both sides of this argument can be right and wrong at the same time, because “Government” is too big and too vague to prove or disprove a conspiracy. Remember, all you need are two or more individuals for a conspiracy, and how wide-reaching it is depends on the resources and influence of the conspirators.
A conspiracy does not have to last indefinitely. The original operation already fulfilled its mission, so once it came time to declassify, there’s nothing anyone can do to stop the original objective. If a bank insider conspires with another insider to use computer systems to transfer millions of dollars to an offshore account, knowing that it may take 30 days or more before the bank is on to the trail (for example), and then the conspirators leave the country to a place with no extradition agreement, then it does not matter if the bank finds out later or not. The conspirators are home free. Declassification can work similarly (depending on what is being declassified).
