    2700 incidents over what denominator? I suspect this is a small almost infinitesimal number of breaches given the vast activities of NSA.

    Typical tea partiers and their lack of math skills.

    August 9th, 2013-President Obama:"If you look at the reports, even the disclosures that Mr. Snowden’s put forward, all the stories that have been written, what you’re not reading about is the government actually abusing these programs and, you know, listening in on people’s phone calls or inappropriately reading people’s e-mails. What you’re hearing about is the prospect that these could be abused. Now part of the reason they’re not abused is because they’re — these checks are in place, and those abuses would be against the law and would be against the orders of the FISC [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court]."


    Phony scandals? LOL. We're not invading people's privacy? LOL.

    Does anyone here really believe that anything else is to be expected? I mean, even cops like to peek in at a good looking corpse being autopsied while having a donut or two. They are the beast that they are.

    Not surprising at all that the N.S.A. is overstepping its boundaries, but sadly, it will cause some here, who blindly defend and swallow everything the N.S.A. does, to have exploding heads because their worldview is rapidly changing.
    I thought this was one of those alleged "phoney scandals?."

    The best part is that those who did call this a "phoney scandal" are now defending all this domestic spying while attempting to portray the spying as "logical" and some have gone as far as to claim "people don't have a right to privacy (and some don't want it)."

    Simply amazing stuff..

    What do you expect? Obama along with the majority of those in government are pathological liars.

    One time is too many.....

    Of course these are only a couple of thousand of instances that we know of...

    Cant say that I'm shocked that you're defending this alleged "phoney scandal."

    Funny how it didn't exist (despite the evidence) and now that it is acknowledged you're attempting to write it off as a non-issue.

    Each president gets more ambitious in grabbing power. Until we make an example of you won't get away with it, it will get worse in future administrations.
    If you live long enough, you will live in a foreign country, because the past is foreign to the present. We lived differently then. The only constant is change!

    If libertarians didn't consistently remind our tyrannical government that the Bill of Rights in fact isn't a hoax - we would have no civil liberties at all.

    Libertarians are continually hated by both republicans and democrats but we're the ones that - despite the hate - that keep our freedoms intact...
