Oliver Stone and other Hollywood libs tell NSA: ‘Stop watching us’

Oliver Stone, Maggie Gyllenhaal, John Cusack and Phil Donahue are among the star-studded Hollywood cast that joined National Security Agency whistle-blowers in releasing a new public service announcement demanding the NSA stop spying on Americans.

“Everybody is at risk for getting caught up in the NSA dragnet,” Stone says in the video. “History tells us we need to watch the watchers.”

The ad compares the NSA’s actions to those of former President Richard Nixon who kept “tabs on his political enemies and the press,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“It was wrong then, and it’s wrong now,” Cusack says in the spot. “The tools for surveillance have never been more powerful and the threat to our civil liberties has never been greater.”

The video is part of an effort by celebrities to support NSA leaker Edward Snowden. More than 100 public-interest groups are organizing an Oct. 26 rally in Washington, D.C., called Stop Watching Us, calling for a congressional investigation into the NSA spy programs, according to Variety.
