Without specialized knowledge, it's genuinely hard to know what to think about PRISM.

On the one hand, it's deeply unsettling to know that an administration that has shown a decided tendency to harass and abuse its critics could even potentially have access to personal information about Americans.  It's hard to have any sympathy for President Obama as torrents of criticism from across the political spectrum rain down on him, given his hypocrisy and exploitation of similar issues in his political campaigns.

On the other hand, none of us wants another day like 9/11/01, ever again.  It's hard for any of us...
