Talk about the situation of the NSA we know the two series of exposed.
-- came out.
Once they went on Thursday found -- -- -- on violence follows he has a program of looking at phone records the other was an expanded version called prism when they look at all social media.
Examining all nine servers worldwide the biggest servers in the world are looking in the US so using that capability in order to -- through FaceBook Yahoo!.
And all major social networking sites in order to stop the next terror attacks using complex.
Algorithms and programs a lot of people say wait a second during my FaceBook they're looking at my bills we're -- my phone numbers way over the top and others say wait I remember when people who have fallen out of buildings because we didn't pick up signals and we ended up having 3000 Americans die right that's what we need to do -- 29 year old -- Snowden who had worked for the CIA and most recently for Booz Allen Hamilton.
-- -- himself yesterday there he is in a hotel room in Hong Kong he said he is -- mean.
With the United States is doing because United States is destroying privacy around the world.
-- Even if you're not doing anything wrong you're being watched and recorded and -- the storage capability of these systems increases every year.
By orders of magnitude.
To where it's getting the point you don't have to have done anything wrong.
-- simply have to eventually fall under suspicion from somebody even by a wrong call.
And then they can use the system to go back in time and scrutinize every decision you have for me every friend you've ever discussed something with.
And attacks you on that basis to sort of derive suspicion.
From an innocent life -- anyone in the context of a wronged or.
So he gave up his life -- three weeks ago he moved from Hawaii to Hong Kong he knew that this information would come out.
He allowed the guardian which was the establishment that he gave the story -- to say who he was.
Over the weekend so what do you think you -- a hero or -- trader let's ask Donald Trump who joins us every Monday morning to get his thoughts good morning to Donald.
So is the whistle Laura to a threat to national security.
Or is he an American -- on your mind.
Well to begin with I find it very interesting that he goes to Hong Kong to get a little security.
It's a pretty strange they go about with -- Frankly I don't think -- -- -- here I didn't like -- to me it looks like a grandstand from watching if he's been dead for three months.
-- I didn't like give -- the same time.
I mean that's a lot of information that people are getting and you know that our government is getting -- say really where -- -- stop.
So it's a -- there's no question about it but I don't like -- I don't like what they're doing.
-- -- -- my concern this morning Donald is that I -- I don't want our country to have in fighting as a result of it and I fear that.
Now the country's gonna be separated on and what they think about him what they think about the NSA but they think about how we treat terrorism.
And it's it's it's -- that means you have that feeling at all.
Well I don't know that there's any answer me you know -- BO -- bumpers stronger as it gets on terrorism and yet you know what you're just going -- to everybody's records that you can go to any enemies records and has nothing to do about terrorism -- -- -- -- -- government.
You know you really say where -- -- stop right particulates far far too it's too evasive it's too what it's doing is actually credible.
And you're talking about hundreds of billions of emails and everything so.
If they're going way too far.
At the same time we had that electric guy like this because you know you can claim national security yup -- -- -- he can claim it but we can definitely -- itself -- what happens with him.
The -- Michael Hayden explained it is that.
You know for example you get someone was here -- stand any go to his Bob pockets and you find a bunch of phone numbers there you plug them in and a bunch of things light up because you're able to store this stuff.
And you're able to get direct lines of passage.
Because we have the unique ability since we created the Internet thanks to Al Gore -- -- -- -- major servers in this country so we're using that asset to our advantage.
Well you know -- -- it initiated trials every time we have a travel used to ask her like -- what is now all they ask where is emailed everything's about emails.
And you know it's getting to a point where our lives are very different that they used to -- And I don't like people like this because there could be additional security concern -- -- probably is at the same time what he's doing is really wrong.
And I think also what the government is doing is wrong.
Sure we understand there's a report out this morning that apparently this guy is looking for asylum it sounds like he's got a couple of allies in the country of ice land.
Apparently Iceland is his best option he's likely is is prison.
But -- -- you don't it seems to come down to for a lot of people is -- George Bush started this program and that you know the administration back -- He was just looking in -- phone calls between United States and internationally.
Now it's all of our calls and all of our -- email that comes down to this.
Do you trust the government because there are so many people out there given what happened with the IRS thing they don't trust the government.
Well it's very hard to trust him right now and -- just added I think if you if you really look at it what's going on with other nations of invalidate the trust that he or.
Could you know this is affecting other nations suspect he picked there's security.
And we're supposed to have relationships with other people -- other countries.
And I mean this is having a huge impact on them.
I -- when they're extremely upset about it I don't know what's -- so.
This is a real mess it's got -- -- -- but I'm not sure there's been a very good answer I -- bad guy however.
I wish him well I thought had I wish that -- people had access to it according to his claims he could have sold is in the Intel.
For you -- hire anybody else that figure -- will be more about all that's just me personally I could anybody.
And he couldn't he have that access.
And a third of the people of the one point four million -- that -- access our private contractors that we have no control at these private contractors who they know who they are hiring.
We did have a big problem with the Internet -- and have always watched and epilepsy you know the old days you'd have privacy you'd have real privacy today with the computer you press -- -- you get some.
Brilliant computer geek.
Did you know knows what they're doing and all of a sudden everything's exposed and -- this wouldn't have been fifteen years ago ten years ago.
I think it's really we are are -- very each -- about -- cyber wars and everything else.
We are -- a very weak platform that's very very disconcerting.
You know I sort of like to go back to the old days we at right numbers down -- the.
-- a problem.
-- athletic cup next to a wall and you get here the other room and -- -- let me right now and apparently that's how he rose in the ranks of the CIA and also to this latest job because he didn't graduate from high school but he was so good in computers I do want to mention that.
There are of politicians are saying that two major.
A terrorist threats were thwarted.
As a result of these efforts -- you have to put that in perspective that the Boston bombing.
Was not captured through any of these efforts don't real quickly what do you make of the fact that -- world taking away bikinis because -- didn't want to offend Muslims in Indonesia.
I don't miss universe so I am actually very happy about it because it's -- keep their ratings are gonna go right down the troops.
So if you do would you ever give -- says the Muslim the sensitivity -- problem.
We shouldn't just be there there are other places that we have I think eighteen different countries what I have to miss universe got -- so -- a lot of choices that these and probably the answer is you don't go there.
So I think it's safe to say that if Donald Trump is gonna do a beauty pageant people are going to be one of the teams.
You connect Garrett at the idea I can guarantee that they just -- -- Van -- and that's that's worked as a compromise.
Well -- you know what a way to world go to maybe that'll be next fantastic wouldn't that be beautiful Smart.
Donald Trump always a pleasure thank you very much candidates on the stagnant.
