    Been working so much that I haven’t caught the NSA thing in full yet, but there is and always has been something disturbing about the idea that anyone should have access to our entire lives, which is really what the core issue seems to be. How can you anyone be trusted with such a thing?


  2. All wiretapping of American citizens by the National Security Agency requires a warrant from a three-judge court set up under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act . After the 9/11 attacks, Congress passed the Patriot Act , which granted the President broad powers to fight a war against terrorism. The George W. Bush administration used these powers to bypass the FISA court and directed the NSA to spy directly on al Qaeda in a new NSA electronic surveillance program . Reports at the time indicate that an “apparently accidental” “glitch” resulted in the interception of communications that were purely domestic in nature.
