STOP with these self proclaimed Obama PHONY scandals! You make his transparent administration look like liars, and that is NOT what I pay for. I want lies and poor results. Damnit!

Amazing how all of those fervent Obama posters who just 2 months ago were telling us on here that the NSA was in no way snooping are nowhere to be found lately. In their minds their leader and his appointees haven't lied to us, broken any laws and Edward Snowden is still a traitor. End of discussion!!!!

If you still think this is about finding terrorists you might want to wise up! Inmates have their emails looked at as well so what's the difference.

Oversight? The key here would be are they making appropriate links to terrorism in the collection of data. Without non-partisan oversight this could be used as a dangerous domestic tool of terrorism by the party within the US....Though I never said that you understand.

I'm thinking the GOP would have been more successful in trying to defund the NSA than Obamacare.
