Edward Snowden is concerned that people aren’t quite freaked out enough about the NSA’s invasion of everyday, constitutionally guaranteed privacy. What more can he do, damn it, to get people to wake up and freak out?
He can say the NSA is looking at us naked. That’s alarming. Terrorists rarely work naked, after all, so nude photos of people would seem–at the very least–to fall outside the mandate for the controversial surveillance program. Snowden basically accused NSA workers of being deeply human and unprofessional–in other words, as tempted to look at naked people as the rest of us are. According to an interview with Snowden in The Guardian, NSA workers are especially titillated by “nude photographs of people in ‘sexually compromising’ situations.” The NSA workers tend to share such photos with their pals, says Snowden. You may not care enough about the NSA listening to your private phone calls, but looking at your privates?
