One of the most significant news revelations of 2013 was in reference to Governments spying on each other and all citizens of the Planet. This activity has been going on since the beginning of humans most likely. However, the rules have changed. This is no longer a 'man in a trench coat with a spy glass'. For those of you like me who really do not understand what is happening, I have found a Special Current Events Report on Wikipedia with a timeline of reported events. I have shared this info below in a two part post.

"Taken together, the revelations have brought to light a global surveillance system that cast off many of its historical restraints after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Secret legal authorities empowered the NSA to sweep in the telephone, Internet and location records of whole populations."
