    The NSA has better computers and software, so far anyway.

    Also, lots of staff means lots of potential leakers ;)

    And the USA also employs police to surveillance the internet. :D Every country has it, so why is the West pointing their finger at China?

    We dont know that for sure. NSA might be worst than KGB. People simply disappear through rendition.
