Don't Agree!!

Reader comment on item: Another Attempt at "Extreme Vetting"

Submitted by DAVID RACKNER (France), Apr 5, 2017 at 06:10

Mr. Pipes,
I simply don't agree. If a foreign country request my phone or iPad/Laptop info in order to visit their country, I would supply the information to insure the people of that country were not threaten by me in any way. I would not be a threat to them. And I have some confidence their country's citizens would not be a threat to my and/or my family's safety.
Secondly, The NSA, in their new facility in Colorado, already monitors all my devices--especially my conversations from Israel to family and friends in the USA and there is nothing I can do about this invasion of my privacy.

Daniel Pipes replies:

  1. You would, I would not. I bet many others feel as I do.
  2. Even if you are right, that does not mean I will willingly hand my electronic devices over to some foreign policeman.
