    NSA Phone-records spying said to violate rules for years

    The U.S. National Security Agency violated rules on surveillance of telephone records for almost three years and misled a secret court, raising fresh concerns that spy programs lack adequate controls to protect Americans’ privacy.
    The latest revelations show NSA spying was broader, violated restrictions on domestic surveillance more often, and may have targeted innocent Americans to a greater degree than previously known. They are contained in documents released yesterday by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper in response to privacy groups’ lawsuits.

    Despite this fact, there are Americans (even on this board) content to capitulate there civil liberties, its a growing trend in America.

    The NSA/FBI/CIA or whatever alphabet agencies have probably been doing this for decades.

    I know when J. Edgar Hoover was director of the FBI he was spying on just about everyone, so this is nothing new - just a new agency doing it....

    I find it amazing that there are plenty of people out there that just don't care just as long as the government supports them in some way or another.... This Orwellian government has gone way to far and they've been at it for a while now.

    Right. Unfortunately when we first heard about warrantless (i.e., illegal) wiretapping when George Bush was doing it and Sandra Day O'Conner likened it to degenerating into dictatorship, not many cared either.
