The nations' top intelligence official is declassifying three secret U.S. court opinions showing how the National Security Agency scooped up as many as 56,000 emails annually over three years and other communications by Americans with no connection to terrorism, how it revealed the error to the court and changed how it gathered Internet communications.

This means the actual number “scooped up” is thousands of times higher and they made no effort to avoid doing so.
Why did he declassify 56,000 so willingly...?
The honest answer is the one that squeeks out AFTER you’ve started pouring the molten lead.
THEY’RE INCERPTING *EVERYTHING*.
56,000? Seems like they lost a few zeros.
The 4th amendment is deader than a doornail.
Q: So what has been the conservative talking head response?
A: To propose more amendments to the Constitution that will be ignored.
Someone is behind the curve!
“Why did he declassify 56,000 so willingly...?”
It’s a limited hangout.
Victor Marchetti wrote: “A ‘limited hangout’ is spy jargon for a favorite and frequently used gimmick of the clandestine professionals. When their veil of secrecy is shredded and they can no longer rely on a phony cover story to misinform the public, they resort to admittingsometimes even volunteeringsome of the truth while still managing to withhold the key and damaging facts in the case. The public, however, is usually so intrigued by the new information that it never thinks to pursue the matter further.”
Add at least three, maybe six.
ONLY thousands? They must be slackin’.
Limited Hangout: quite so, excellent point to relate the youngsters.
We’ve had 19 terrorists that did major damage to some parts of the country. 19. How this morphed into 56,000 “inncoently” scooped up... Then there’s that the HUNDREDS of thousands on the No-Fly List. I don’t trust any branch of the govt.
I just want to know one thing. How many of those 56,000 made it into the hands of the DNC and ultimately the IRS?
Because that is the 600 pound gorilla in the room.
Everything else has been going on for 60 years.
I guess he’s got the goods on everyone...even the supremes.
Baracus I, invoking the divine right of Kings...
Of course someone is lying. Probably everyone. Cui bono?
They’ve got everything that goes through key routers on its way to google and facebook.
That google and facebook might conveniently collate this data for them doesn’t negate the fact that they already have it.
They are also STEALING Thousands of E-mail attachments containing world-wide private corporate material.
NSA used PRISM to collect more than 200 million internet communications a year as of 2011
Election Fraud, using the IRS and the NSA to take out his opponents.
Obama is where he’s at do to all of this.
Look up how he rose to power in IL.....
it’s called collecting dirt and BLACKMAIL.
