Who the Hell Do These Creeps Think They Are?

This happened under the Obozo/(D) regime, folks.

The National Security Agency has broken privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since Congress granted the agency broad new powers in 2008, according to an internal audit and other top-secret documents.

Most of the infractions involve unauthorized surveillance of Americans or foreign intelligence targets in the United States, both of which are restricted by law and executive order. They range from significant violations of law to typographical errors that resulted in unintended interception of U.S. e-mails and telephone calls.

... In another case, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which has authority over some NSA operations, did not learn about a new collection method until it had been in operation for many months. The court ruled it unconstitutional.

Now we'll hear again from Sensenbrenner that 'we certainly didn't MEAN to give the spooks this....'

Right-O, Jimbo!  Whatever you say, Jim.  Do you really think we're as stupid as you appear to be?
