    Well, it looks like the Federal Government needs to make up their mind. Didn't Napolitano issue a statement telling citizens to spy on other citizens? I believe she labeled it "If you see something, say something".

      Daniel, for what purpose? Those who spy on Syrian opposition protesters in the US do so in order to convey that info to the Syrian government so those US citizens who have family members inside Syria can be identified and their family members threatened and intimidated and worse. Do you really believe these types of actions should be protected within our borders? Personal freedoms do not exist for the purpose of denying them to others. It is my belief that those who live in the US and support the brutal tyrannical regime should move back to Syria and stop using their American freedom to prop up a government that is opressing and killing its citizens.

    "If you see something, say something" is far from "spying." Stupid is as stupid does, dolt.
