Glenn Greenwald lambasts media for complacency after NSA

"[W]e knew in particular that one of our most formidable adversaries was not simply going to be the intelligence agencies on which we were reporting and who we were trying to expose but also their most loyal, devoted servants, which calls itself the United States and British media," Greenwald said."For me, in terms of personal satisfaction, the mission's already accomplished," he told the Post. "I already won. As soon as the journalists were able to work, everything that I had been trying to do was validated. Because, remember, I didn't want to change society. I wanted to give society a chance to determine if it should change itself."because, remember, I didn't want to change society. I wanted to give society a chance to determine if it should change itself
On Friday, a New York-based federal judge ruled that the NSA's programs were constitutional, and did not violate the privacy of Americans.
That ruling was in stark contrast to another federal judge's ruling this month that said the NSA was likely in violation of the U.S. constitution.
And while the Obama administration has expressed some desire to reform the NSA's data collection, no policy changes have been put into place. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., announced this week that the Senate Judiciary Committee, which he chairs, will hold a hearing Jan. 14 on the findings of a presidential task force about the NSA's sprawling program.
But because of the relative inaction on a federal level, and the disparate outcomes of the federal court cases, it has become increasingly likely the ultimate fate of the NSA's programs will be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.
