Incredible. My question would be who do we NOT spy on. Don't they know they are angering friends who are allies who are now questioning that relationship with the United States. We keep this up and we will be the worlds' pariah.

More double-speak from the most transparent administration in history. The arrogance and stupidity of Obama and his band of mindless twits is breathtaking.

Was all this spying going on before Obama was in office? If it was, tough hop for Obama that it comes to light under his presidency.

Thank the PATRIOT Act. When you build an intelligence apparatus as big as the United States has, it's hard to keep it contained to just terrorism related activities. What I find surprising is the number of Republicans who defended the PATRIOT Act when it was put in place. Now, ten years later we are seeing the results of this knee-jerk legislation.

Chuck: Obama has been president for 5 years. Oh, that's right. Obama didn't know about this either.

This is the most corrupt regime to ever govern. What a tragedy that so many low information voters believed the Hope and Change rhetoric. What a silly thing to base your vote on. Then again, he was a community organizer with no work history, business experience, leadership skills and virtually no political experience other than perpetual campaigning. What did you expect?

dearest sek2undrstnd: the Patriot act was a bipartisan reaction to the attack on NY. I find it interesting that it has been enhanced and expanded in the last few years under democratic senate and presidential leadership!
