Stephen Colbert Jabs at NSA for Snooping on Second Life Players

Last night on Comedy Central's the Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert spent a bit of time picking on the idea of the National Security Agency snooping around Second Life. Recently reports revealed that new documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden showed that the NSA was lurking in World of Warcraft, on Xbox Live, and in Second Life (of all places) to keep tabs on terrorists who they believed might be organizing attacks in these virtual worlds. Stephen Colbert poked fun at the recent revelation, showing clips from the game while cracking jokes like this one:

"That's right. The NSA is spying on Second Life, a game for people who don't have a first one," Colbert said.

Colbert rolled a clip of various characters inside Second Life and called out the fact that the NSA documents showed no terrorist plots were foiled by snooping on World of Warcraft and Second Life, instead suggesting that terrorists have "moved on to Madden NFL 25."
