    Yeah I'm sure. It was disbanded when the USSR fell and merged into two other branches, Federal Security Services and Federal Intelligence Service or something similar.

    NSA is bigger and better equipped on a world scale than any other security program on the planet.

    I'm under the impression that NSA is only focused on encryption, government network security and electronic intelligence gathering. KGB was more similar to CIA, where they sent out field agents and develop associates for HUMINT. They both violate civil liberties and human rights of their home country, so fuck them.

    I tried to word that so it was obvious that it was to be taken with a grain of salt.

    Actually what that article points out is that the FSB has legal authority to be far more intrusive than the NSA.
    I don't know that IDL actually read beyond the headline though.
