    Yup! 6 billion a month! 74 million in Poland! So much so that the NSA admits that they are collecting so much more so that they can handle, yet they continue to do it. Literally NSA is(was) the big brother of the world! Another document shows that the NSA focused on Venezuelan oil, Japanese trade, and Mexican energy issues. Big brother of the world!
    This is what they are supposed to do: spy on the world for the advantage of the US.

    It is the spying on us which is the outrage and for which they need to be held accountable for.

    Zhat seems to me to be a very valuable instrument. Probably we need to manage it better and install more robust and legitimate controls of the use. But in general? Good stuff.
    Why do we need to collect data at this extent? How many terrorist attacks have they stopped? Whats the point of collecting data on innocent people?

    Do you really think that other countries aren't spying on us?

    There are many reasons to collect such data. It very much depends on the exact data being mined, how it can help. The areas run from crime fighting and terror prevention over hralth and traffic planing to monitoring for insider trading, corruption or political shenanigans among very many others.

    I, for one, am shocked that an intelligence agency tasked with collecting intelligence on foreign threats and intentions would collect information on foreigners!

    WHO DO THEY THINK THEY ARE! A SPY AGENCY SPYING?! WELL I NEVER!
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    This is one of the main reasons I call for Obama to be impeached and removed from office. Unfortunately, Republicans want to dwell more on Benghazi fairy tales than the real world that Obama is totally screwing with.
