re: NSA Surveillance Can Penetrate VPNs
The government's penetration of VPNs is primarily a law that requires VPN providers to record some of the activities of VPN users.
Once the government needs to track a VPN user, it will get the user's activity data from the VPN service provider.
But if the VPN service provider's jurisdiction is in some safe countries, such as countries and regions that do not have information retention laws. Then governments in other countries have no way to ask VPN service providers to provide users' information.
This makes it impossible to infiltrate, and there are many more secure VPN service providers, such as Nordvpn, ExpressVPN, surfshark, etc., and there is no data retention method in their country.

Yes they can trace whatever they want and store tons of data to thrash the privacy.

re: NSA Surveillance Can Penetrate VPNs
To judge any intelligence organisation by the national law is pretty tricky. An intelligence organisation always will go against it political masters. So when you come up against the so called crimes of any intelligence organisation go to the top, it does not matter in what state you are if it is Israel, Russia or China.

The only point here is that BO should have put more support against the NSA as he has directed them. If you want to reform any of this you should look at the legislative and that is where in the USA I see little coherence. Even Snowden does not blame the NSA as an organisation, but many pro-Snowden activist do not get that either.

But how can we cover ourselve from recent NSA activation to distroy privacy laws? I setup VPN to some what and some how secure my online privacy as it provides encryption and changes my ip to cover my online identity and provide me online anonymity and freedom.

Though theer are many top VPN services but i recommend you to check out this a comprehensive list of best encrypted vpn services that also do not keep logs and provide advacnced protocol to ensure your online privacy

re: NSA Surveillance Can Penetrate VPNs
Does this really come as a shock to most people??

Its obvious that anything you do on pretty much any form of technology is traceable and leaves a digital paper trail.
With that said do you really think the government has the resources to listen/read everyone's facebook chats or emails?

I feel sorry for whoever reads my chats LOL...Perhaps i should be more dramatic in my text to put on a show and give that poor government employee more excitement.
