"NSA's activities are focused and specifically deployed against – and only against – legitimate foreign intelligence targets in response to requirements that our leaders need for information necessary to protect our nation and its interests,” the statement said. “XKeyscore is used as a part of NSA's lawful foreign signals intelligence collection system. Allegations of widespread, unchecked analyst access to NSA collection data are simply not true. Access to XKeyscore, as well as all of NSA's analytic tools, is limited to only those personnel who require access for their assigned tasks … In addition, there are multiple technical, manual and supervisory checks and balances within the system to prevent deliberate misuse from occurring."
That was quite an in-depth article. Thanks for relaying that information.
I found it very interesting.
Information is power, and collecting it is king.
They'll never quit doing it, even if they say that they have,..........
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Very true, Neil.

They are so full of it. They are collecting data on everyone so whenever they need leverage they have it.
“Winston Smith: Does Obama exist?
O'Brien: Of course he exists.
Winston Smith: Does he exist like you or me?
O'Brien: You do not exist.”
― George Orwell, 1984
When your oligarchs do not want you to exist, they just 'unperson' you.
(Other words: kill your body and delete you from their databases and the internet)
These programs weren't created by Obama. They weren't even really created by Bush. They were created by bad legislation, widely supported and rushed through Congress in the days after 9/11, *by* Congresspeople, who believed they had to "do something."
Blaming Obama, or Bush, or any single person isn't just inaccurate, it's dangerous. It ignores the fact that this was an institutional response.
Unfortunately it's true. The US government is just a hypocritical business. You can never know anything about us, but we can spy on you. Stupid NSA.
The NSA really sucks...we're becoming like the Chinese here in the US
