I wonder how secure the governments facilities are in retrospect.

We'll find out, I imagine, as soon as Anonymous gets their press briefing finalized.

But I wouldn't say there's a complete lack of interest. For most Americans,this is just another in a series of scandals that play out on television, abstracted from their real lives. And as someone pointed out to me recently, almost no one seems to care when facebook and gmail mine your data. If it weren't for social media, I don't think PRISM would have been as acceptable culturally.

Although I am a bit disturbed that the threat of affordable healthcare seems to have been far more revolting to people than this.
