Internet Monitoring Saved Lives

The terrorist plot in Canada was uncovered through the monitoring of Internet chat rooms. In this country, less intrusive surveillance and data-collection programs have come under intense criticism. However, the critics of the U.S. programs are not voicing criticism of the Canadian program that foiled a terrorist plot to kill many.

Criticism of a program that prevents widespread death would put the surveillance issue in proper perspective. The next time this issue arises, remember that lives may be in the balance.
