Anti-Semitism Abounds on NSA Secrets Thread

The biggest news to come out of the Snowden leaks is that according to Snowden the NSA (an American intelligence agency) shares raw intelligence that it gathers with Israel, including information on US citizens. Of course, we've known for a long time the NSA also shares information with the UK and Germany, but who cares about them? Naturally, the thread generated over 1,400 comments overnight.

The top comments were actually not too bad for the most part, actually blaming the NSA for what the NSA did. But there were lots of others that were blatantly anti-Semitic (mostly claiming Jews control the US government) and just attacking Israel in general.
