Oh, no doubt. Still, I think it would be interesting to see how far this goes. If it's not all "just fluff", will it start a back and forth between privacy companies and the government, or anything at all?
Anyway, the NSA programs are a huge expenditure of resources and personnel and at the end of the day, are we better for it? I'm not saying that McAffee will answer that question, but it may lead the American public to think more about what is and is not an acceptable allocation of resources. It'll be interesting to see how privacy affects elections at any rate.
