Journalist Glenn Greenwald who broke the NSA spying story slammed the rush to exploit US fears to justify a broad and limitless spying program in an interview with Democracy Now! on Monday:

Not all politicians are jumping on board to praise the NSA for unfoiling a potential terror plot. “There’s no indication, unless I’m proved wrong later, that that program which collects vast amounts of … domestic telephone data contributed to information about this particular plot,” Rep. Adam Schiff (R-Mass.) told CNN.

Nonetheless, critics worry that spying advocate are using the moment to shift the debate away from mass outrage about secret surveillance. Amie Stepanovich, a lawyer with the Electronic Privacy Information Center, warned the Guardian of a burgeoning “culture of fear and unquestioning deference to surveillance in the United States.”
