GOP Rep.: ‘You Can’t Have Your Privacy Violated If You Don’t Know Your Privacy Is Violated’
by Josh Feldman | 6:07 pm, October 29th, 2013

Republican Congressman Mike Rogers was interrogating American University College of Law professor Stephen Vladeck over his concerns about NSA surveillance programs, poking and prodding a professor more aggressively than most members of Congress have dared do with the people actually making these decisions behind closed doors.
Rogers said, “Maybe the fact that we haven’t had any complaints come forward with any specificity arguing that their privacy has been violated clearly indicates, in ten years, clearly indicates that something must be doing right––somebody must be doing something exactly right.”
Vladeck rightly asked, “But who would be complaining?” And that’s when Rogers dropped this piece of knowledge.

“Somebody whose privacy was violated. You can’t have your privacy violated if you don’t know your privacy is violated, right?”
