Der wilde Westen

Ich muss mir immer wieder in Erinnerung rufen, dass illegale Handlungen der US-Behörden für manche US-Bürgerinnen kein prinzipielles Problem darstellen (Hervorhebung von mir):

What strikes me as the most troubling aspect is that for most of these, there is no real urgency to the intelligence. It’s one thing (in my mind) to aggressively bend, or break, laws if there is an assumed imminent terrorist attack. It’s a completely different thing if it is just routine preventative measures.

So to me, I’m fine with going all wild west if we know something big is about to go down and we are aggressively trying to stop that, but I am not fine with aggressive tactics as a matter of course.
