Hello, my name is Robert Malizia, you may have seen my article about Minecraft, or the one about the class of 1962 service project. I’m here to write an article on the NSA, and how it is good. I know the story about what happened, after 9/11/01, the United States of America made an organization called the NSA that would protect the country from potential threats. All that changed earlier this year when a man, Edward Snowden, a former member of the NSA had leaked info about the NSA and how they were spying on people’s phone calls, emails, and google search history. After finding out that the NSA was breaking laws that THEY set up with the UN, the American people freaked out, and went on protest against the NSA. I’m here to tell you that the NSA is not really that bad.
The NSA was made under the 1st term of President George W. Bush. They were made to protect the USA of potential threats that can hurt innocent people. The NSA has been stalking the American people to make sure that the don’t want to hurt anyone, or repeat 9/11. Plus, if you don’t view or say anything bad, then you should be fine, for example, if someone that works for the NSA views my google account, they will not find anything that could harm anyone, but the next person that they look at could be planning to bomb a city, or kill a government official, this can then be stopped by telling the local police, which will go to the person’s house, and arrest them. If we did not have the NSA, this person would most likely be able to commit the crime, this is why we need the NSA to stay.
