If, as you suggest, the $20M price tag is a lie, one wonders what else in the show is a lie.

Is the $20M cost the only part of the slide-show you question?
Why are you asking, your the one who brought it up, not me. As long as they will continue to capture data on US citizens the cost will be to our civil rights, and in taxpayer dollars. Being done in secret does not make it right.

You don't believe the cost stated in the last slide, WOW! When has the government done anything cheaply? Like millions for toilet seats, and hammers? Then 70Million for bonus's to the UNION IRS management? The price of 20M is probably only 50% of the real cost, for both systems.

I don't believe the $20 million a year price tag claimed in the last slide.

That's what the Jews said in Germany in a time not so long ago...

This comment says it all:

<<<"We don't know if crimes have been committed. It's secret surveillance of secret targets approved by a secret court with secret decisions and controlled by secret laws.">>>
