Snowden Hits the Nail on the Head 

Edward Snowden previously said about mass surveillance by the NSA:
These programs were never about terrorism: they’re about economic spying, social control, and diplomatic manipulation. They’re about power.
Today, Snowden told a TED conference:
Is it really terrorism that we’re stopping? I say no.
***
The bottom line is that terrorism [...] has always been a cover for actions. Terrorism evokes an emotional response.
He’s right
