– Introductory Statement:
I would like to thank the European Parliament for the invitation to provide
testimony for your inquiry into the Electronic Mass Surveillance of EU Citizens.
The suspicionless surveillance programs of the NSA, GCHQ, and so many others
that we learned about over the last year endanger a number of basic rights
which, in aggregate, constitute the foundation of liberal societies.
