Renee Montagne from NPR spoke with liberal columnist and author Glenn Greenwald, the reporter who co-wrote the stories for the British newspaper The Guardian, today on the massive data-mining scandal.
Greenwald dropped this bomb during the interview.
There are reported examples of the NSA, analysts at the NSA, using mechanisms they have access to. ABC reported several years ago through whistle blowers that they have used it to eavesdrop on people on whom they have personal grudges. There are isolated examples of the Patriot Act being abused. The problem is that the entire system operates behind a wall of extreme secrecy.
Heres Greenwald on NPR this morning:
But surely the Obama administration would not eavesdrop on political opponents.

So THAT’S why McCain and Lindsay Graham vote like idiots. The NSA are listening.
Just add it to the list of Impeachable Offenses.
Watch your step out there, Glenn. Don’t get Breitbarted.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
“.....reported several years ago through whistle blowers that they have used it to eavesdrop on people on whom they have personal grudges....”
or, perhaps people who they wish to subject to blackmail and are on the lookout for blackmail material or leads to that blackmail material? Paging John Roberts......Justice Roberts?
I was just thinking that they were planning to use the data base to kill these scandals
Just when you think the situation is really bad...it gets worse.
Why wouldn't you trust a communist?
I guess we know why Pelosi was so sure about Obamacare being upheld.
It’s no wonder the Boston bombers got through.
Shouldn’t have blamed the cia for the bengazi affair I suppose...
Oops. Caught again
How many I don’t remember .... Or recall will this one emit?
Iirc the blanket surveillance was activated by the FBI....
I can hear Valerie Jarrett now, saying this to Congress: “Don’t you dare call me to testify, or I’ll expose ALL of your dirty little secrets.” Perhaps THIS is why all the people who get called to testify are the people who don’t matter.
drip, drip, drip, drip
There is too much, and this is too sophisticated, for the source not to be someone in intel.
Either the Mossad or our own folks P.O.-ed at being thrown under the bus on Benghazi.
