Why Won’t the NSA Tell Us?

Why the big mystery about who was responsible for shooting down the Malaysian airliner? The NSA collects trillions of pieces of information – so that they can “protect” us from “terrorists,” of course – so shouldn’t this agency have ALL the phone calls, e-mails, Internet communications, videos, picture post-cards, stained-glass windows, etc., etc. that [a] should have forewarned of this attack and, failing in this alleged purpose, [b] identify the culprits and the transactions that brought all of this about? President Obama, Wolf Blitzer, the gangs at Fox News, MSNBC, the New York Times, the War Street Journal, the Washington Post, and even John McCain, want to know who pulled off this atrocity? NSA’s motto is “collect it all,” so why won’t they share with the rest of us? Do we have to wait for another government whistle-blower to spill the beans?
