People may plan their movements around using certain roads or bridges or mass transportation, etc. as they become more dept at understanding the creation and sharing of personal data.

      Apparently that is the buzzword for this #SCAMdal.

      Leaking classified information is a crime.  It is against the law.  There are credible arguments that the government overclassifies documents/information.  I agree.  But it is not illegal or improper for the government to investigate crimes.

      Defenders of the freedom of the press, in my opinion, are making the wrong argument when they portray this as a scandal and/or call for DOJ firings.

    •  yes because (0+ / 0-)

      obviously the government lawfully investigating people leaking information deemed classified is grounds for being crazy

      Seriously? Can you even hear the argument you are making? Thank you for falling into the paranoid delusions of the tea party

      •  What argument do you think I'm making? (0+ / 0-)

        And precisely what is lawful investigation of people suspected of leaks today? Or, more apropos, of all the people working in buildings used by people who may be suspected of leaks?

        •  seriously? (0+ / 0-)

          when you sign a legally binding agreement on how to treat information deemed classified you don't get to just violate that because you feel like it

          Grow up please I am sick of this 'oh it's so unfair' no unfair is China montioring and even censoring the internet, unfair is risking your life to speak against the government in the USSR (and even to an extent now in Russia)

          Your arguments are an embarrassment to those having to struggle under actual government oppression. You really should be ashamed of yourself
