Tillerson will be sorely missed…..
Tillerson was terrible….. but Pompeo is even worse!!!!!
Pompeo supports the surveillance programs of the National Security Agency. He wants Congress to make it easier to collect metadata, and combine it with publicly available financial and lifestyle information into a comprehensive, searchable database (for US citizens). He wants legal and bureaucratic impediments to surveillance to be removed. That includes Presidential Policy Directive-28, which bestows privacy rights on foreigners and imposes burdensome requirements to justify data collection.
