PRI.org – Ten talking points the NSA use

PRI.org – Ten talking points the NSA uses to justify its spying – The US government often taps into our collective fear when it defends, supports, or justifies its spying — even if what it’s doing includes torture, hacking into our email, or more recently, tapping the phones of foreign leaders.But it’s hard to come out and say that bluntly. So officials use carefully-crafted messaging.

Al Jazeera America’s Jason Leopold recently obtained a master list of such messages, known as “talking points,” developed by the National Security Agency. The documents suggest to leaders “sound bites that resonate.” Leopold says two main themes run through the talking points: 9/11 and the phrase “connect-the-dots.” http://pri.org/stories/2013-11-01/ten-talking-points-nsa-uses-justify-its-spying
