Dropbox's Condoleezza Rice advocates warrantless NSA surveillance

In 2005, Dropbox's newest Board member Condoleezza Rice went on national TV and defended the NSA's illegal warrantless surveillance program.

We now know the NSA program went much, much further than we could have possibly imagined at the time. What we now know is that the illegal NSA surveillance program monitored every American — every phone call, every cell phone, and every email sent. We learned that the NSA broke into American companies' servers and monitored as much communication as they could. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

We didn't know how far it went, but Condoleezza Rice did know.

Given everything we now know about the NSA warrantless surveillance program, and Rice's role in it, why on earth would we want someone like her involved with Dropbox, an organization we are trusting with our most important business and personal data?
