Snowden Reveals Existence of NSA Billion Camera Program

Edward_Snowden-2Former NSA Contractor Edward Snowden has just revealed that the NSA is planning to install a billion cameras around the country. These cameras will put the average American under the surveillance of at least three cameras at any one time. In defending the program, NSA Director of Photo Surveillance Jorge Horwell stated, “We never know when an American citizen will come in contact with a foreign national. Consequently we must watch everyone.” Horwell also indicated that Americans have no right to privacy when national interests are at stake.

The costs of the NSA program will be significant, but according to Horwell, “The new program will pay for itself. We expect to partner with Shutterfly to offer photo surveillance books, along with mugs, mouse pads, and t-shirts.” In support of this initiative, Shutterfly is opening a new facility in Minnesota to accommodate production requirements.
