Over Reach Means You Wind Up With Your Head Up Your Own Ass

Who has their head up their ass?  Why all the good spooks at NSA, CIA, DIA and any other group that used the Patriot Act to grab electronic data on everybody.  The spooks leveraged (scared the legal shit out of) companies to comply with requests.  The spooks took control of encryptation and abused it.  The spooks overreached.  They pissed off Americans, Europeans, Asians, Africans, etc.

Companies, abused by the feds are biting back--thank you Mr. Snowden.  The spooks are pissed.  They can demand Big Brother legislation, but that probably won't work since the companies are global.  If the spooks had not over-reacted, we'd not have heard from Mr. Snowden, and the easy tools would still be there for them to use when a court decided it's okay.  Instead in a fear based moment of total paranoia, garnished with some amazing technical tools, they managed to shove their heads so far up their asses they may have turned themselves inside out.  It has't been a pretty sight.
