    Theoretically speaking of course. I know you cannot share results or such.
    Because there are very dangerous crazy people. Most terrorist plots and attempts are by Americans, not foreigners.

    Except it is to the people that matter. It's not really about finding American threats, though. It's about monitoring those that are in contact with threats overseas and using it to track them.

    Crap. The people and their rights matter.

    There is no excuse for circumventing American rights to privacy.

    None.

    In your opinion, you mean. You realize there is no mention of the word privacy in the Bill of Rights or any subsequent amendment, right? Good.

    Your opinion is just that: yours. Other people, some more knowledgeable, some more powerful, some both, disagree with your opinion. Sorry, that's the (obvious) fact.

    What are you gonna do about it? I'd suspect nothing but post on DP about it.

    Edward Snowden did enough damage in exposing the truth about the pathetic government that we have.

    That is a good start, and there will be more.

    The arrogance and holier-than-thou attitude of the governmental fools always brings them down.

    I will continue to applaud their efforts in forcing transparency.

    You lose.
