Morally, it's wrong, but practically, it's vital. I'd have to say yes, but I don't feel good about it.

@98TGR6L from Iowa answered…4 days

Light surveillance wont hurt but don't probe very far without cause.

@98T6HVF from Iowa answered…5 days

Yes, because it is decreasing terrorist attacks but keep in communication with the Nations.

@98SBFGX from Missouri answered…1wk

If there is a time of crisis or the U.S. belives that their allies are possibly betraying them then yes but if neither of those things are happening in the moment than no.

@98SB74W from Mississippi answered…1wk

No, because the US doesn't like it when other countries do it to us.

@98S4ZQV from Alabama answered…1wk

No, spying on our allies severely damages our reputation abroad. More policy should go toward our engagement with any other country to keep this from being an issue regardless of what they are doing.

@98PYSGNfrom Virgin Islands  answered…2wks

Yes, however limit the access which the USA has into certain governments with consent given. However, if there is a potential threat to National Security detected, then the NSA should be given free rein to investigate the threat.

@98P4FYC from California answered…2wks

No abolish it and stop spying on our allies since it’s severally damaging our reputation abroad.

@98P2PVRConstitution from Arizona answered…2wks

In certain circumstances, I think it makes sense to, when there is a direct threat. but, we should trust our allies a little bit and only use surveillance when we must.

@98NRG6PSocialist from California answered…2wks

I feel that some surveillance is necessary for stopping possible attacks, but it should be discussed more thoroughly with our government's officials and allies.

@98NQVQM from California answered…2wks

Allies should only be questioned and investigated when there is suspicion of them making terrorist attacks.

@98JFPNR from North Carolina answered…3wks

The NSA already monitors US citizens why not throw allies in the mix.

@98HM5QGIndependent from Texas answered…4wks

The NSA should of course only be used for good. If we can't use it for good, then we shouldn't use it, but we unfortunately cannot trust the NSA to always do that even if they plan on it. This is the reality we live in.

Observational data collected at the NSA needs to be accessible for the relevant Departments for real time applications. Secondarily it must be preserved for declassification later; providing invaluable access to researchers in the future who will utilize data to find more accurate generalizations and valuable data points.

Not unless the country is suspected to do something that could harm America or if it's doing some sketchy things.

No, but if there is a suspected danger in a foreign country, we should get permission to do some surveillance.
