Is the Death of 2,753 in 9/11 Attacks Enough to Justify NSA’s Spying on 300 Mln Americans? You Decide

It would seem that we Americans should ask more probing questions about exactly why the NSA still insists it needs to spy on every American’s phone calls in the so-called need of “national security” to protect us from the boogeyman known as the terrorist threat. It makes no sense that twice as many U.S. soldiers have to die than the number of Americans who died on 9/11. So let’s look at some numbers to try to find a real motive for this unprecedented level of surveillance.

Total number killed in 9/11 attacks in New York: 2,753 http://nymag.com/news/articles/wtc/1year/numbers.htm

6,717 American soldiers died in War on Terror (Afghanistan and Iraq Wars total) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_military_casualties_of_war

On average in 2011, 89 people were killed on the roadways of the U.S. each day. In 2010, there were an estimated 5,419,000 crashes, killing 32,885 and injuring 2,239,000.[1] There were 32,367 traffic fatalities in 2011.

About half of all Americans who keep smoking will die because of the habit. Each year about 443,000 people in the United States die from illnesses related to tobacco use. Smoking cigarettes kills more Americans than alcohol, car accidents, suicide, AIDS, homicide, and illegal drugs combined. http://www.cancer.org/cancer/cancercauses/tobaccocancer/cigarettesmoking/cigarette-smoking-who-and-how-affects-health

Alcohol abuse kills some 75,000 Americans each year and shortens the lives of these people by an average of 30 years, a U.S. government study suggested Thursday. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which published the study, estimated that 34,833 people in 2001 died from cirrhosis of the liver, cancer and other diseases linked to drinking too much beer, wine and spirits.

Another 40,933 died from car crashes and other mishaps caused by excessive alcohol use. http://www.nbcnews.com/id/6089353/ns/health-addictions/t/alcohol-linked-us-deaths-year/

If the U.S. really wanted to “protect” as many American lives as possible, does it make sense to have twice as many American soldiers die in the so-called War on Terror than civilians who died in the original 9/11 that gave birth to the Patriot Act that then was used as a basis for the NSA spying on every American and all citizens in other countries? Of course, this makes no sense whatsoever. If some 443,000 Americans die from tobacco use each year, then it is much more effective to use government resources on banning the tobacco trade entirely than on a purposeful over-reaction to the 9/11 attacks in New York (and many feel that the full truth about 9/11 has yet to be exposed). As tragic as the deaths on 9/11 were, they don’t justify the need for the NSA to have detailed call information on every American’s phone calls and geo-location. The chance of any American dying from a terrorist attack are extremely small, so common sense suggests that the U.S. intelligence community has an ulterior motive in needing to spy on every citizen in the world, including American taxpayers, and turning that information over to Israel.
