Ben Blum a 13 year old filmmaker has made a documentary about how the NSA is spying on the world. Over the past few years we have heard a lot of news on the NSA but the way it works can be confusing and complicated to understand.
Ben’s documentary titled “Data Obsession – a Look into the government surveillance” explains (with simple words) how the NSA works, how it came to what it is today, what their purpose are and why people hate the NSA. We first heard of what the NSA when former president Bush introduced it 23 days after 9/11 as a way to prevent terrorist from doing what they did that day by using advanced technology to spy on them and be able to predict future attacks, but in 2014 almost 13 years after 9/11 the US government is still using these tactics, instead of using it to spy on terrorist which could be a thread to the security of the country they use it on their citizens, to spy on them.
It is amazing to see how a 13 year old has put together such a professional looking documentary all by him self and is definitely worth taking a look at.
