NSA surveillance panel is shutdown, thanks US government shutdown

US government shutdown has pushed the NSA surveillance panel into hold mode

| Privacy & Rights News | Posted: Oct 7, 2013 9:36 am

Under the US government shutdown, we have 800,000 'non-essential' government staff not being paid, but there's enough money to keep things spied on at the NSA. But, don't think about looking into the NSA spying if you're part of the NSA surveillance panel.

The funds to the NSA surveillance panel have been put on hold thanks to the government shutdown, which was one of president Obama's promises: to look into the NSA's spying system. The panel is now stopped until funds begin flowing again, which will require Congress to start deciding on something, and fast. Then we have the US debt ceiling to begin worrying about.

 

Do you think we'll get to the bottom of the NSA's PRISM system?
