This is depressing. The government gets embarrassed so it feels the need to strike back. It's ironic though that for all the claims from supposedly regular leftists here that they welcome the NSA spying, that they seem to have no objections to how lax security is in some common sense areas like Nuclear weapons production facilities.

Instead the response is always for government to get more intrusive.
