Bye American

My travels have taken me to various parts of Europe recently. On practically every trip, at some stage in a lighter moment of conversation, someone will mention the NSA and wonder aloud 'are they listening to us'? It always gets a laugh.

Still, if I was an American selling to Europe, I'd be worried. Bruce Schneier is:
Buy American doesn’t sell well anymore because it means give a copy to the NSA.
Pity they didn't listen to George Washington:
The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all departments in one, and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism.
