US has major Internet image problem

US faces major Internet image problem, former gov't official says - New America Foundation, Rebecca MacKinnon, Andrew McLaughlin, regulation, U.S. National Security Agency, U.S. Department of State, internet, legislation, digg, privacy, Phil Verveer, security, Human Rights First, Global Voices Online, U.S. Federal Communications Commission, government - Computerworld: "NSA surveillance allegations have led to countries questioning the country's commitment to Internet freedom, a former Obama official says - Many U.S. policy makers don't recognize the level of distrust created by recent revelations about U.S. National Security Agency surveillance, and that lack of trust will drive other countries away from U.S. technology firms, said Andrew McLaughlin, former White House deputy CTO...."

And to think, the world's most powerful nation threw it all away (internet freedom, its reputation, its influence, its respect and standing in the global community) just to satisfy the cretins at NSA and the security-industrial complex! I guess Osama bin Laden won after all.
