    Re: NSA broke privacy rules thousands of times per year, audit finds

    The great thing is that government can always be trusted, just like we have been always told how stupid the slippery slope people are. After healthcare I wonder if there is anything else the left will need to control for us.

    Thinking about it, it is pretty cool in my house here in AZ. Probably not fair to someone. We will probably have temperature regulations by the time my daughter gets my age. Sad really.

    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.
    This is why I'm happy when individuals reveal state secrets to the public -- because almost invariably what they're revealing is that the government is out of control.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Government is way out of control. We saw this show just last month.
    The problem appears to be (everywhere) that the organization is held responsible but not the bureaucrats within. And when they are named they mumble denials or take the fifth. And when that happens it is the government taking the fifth, not just their employees.

    The first job of any bureaucracy is to protect that bureaucracy and that's why the names of these bureaucrats are almost always protected It's as though having their names published was an invasion of their privacy, despite being on the public dollar.

    The audit, while leaked, shows that there are protocols in place and that this isn't just a rogue outfit..

    If I was running a government agency and I wanted to violate the crap out of the civil rights of a whole mess of people, I would:

    1) Conceal the violations among a flood of legitimate activity
    2) Audit my own activity
    3) Discover the impropriety
    4) Propose and implement corrective action
    5) Find a new angle, rinse and repeat

    Sound familiar? That's what great about internal audits.
