It reminds me of the movie “The Matrix” where you have a choice between the red pill and the blue pill. If you take the red pill you see reality as it really is. If you take the blue pill you remain in blissful ignorance.
The NSA is here to protect you. It’s a balance between liberty and safety. I want you to believe me what I tell you that we lie to you for your own protection. And even though I don’t know what is going on myself and I’m too stupid to understand it if I did I can assure you that there is congressional oversight. So take the blue pill and remain in blissful ignorance.
Thus say Nancy Pelosi – the Goddess of Blissful Ignorance.
