    I find it hard to believe that they have a name for it if it has only happened a handful of times over the last decade.

    i'm pretty sure they dug deep into Justice Roberts' data before that final opinion came out. Same way they got rid of Patreus when he was going to blow the whistle on Benghazi. They just go data mining using NSA and then use whatever they can find to blackmail those not enlightened enough to understand and appreciate the greatness of 0 and VJ

    Not going to, but you know it's gonna happen sooner or later with one of these rogue agents in these 'Obama crony' infiltrated agencies.

    This is only the tip of the iceberg I'm sure. I hope Snowden can eventually gets it all out there before he's disappeared.

    Yeah I foresee a not-so-happy ending for him.

    And anyone else surprised about this? I know I'm not.

    And people wonder why some are so uneasy about constantly handing over reins of things to our government.

    That's the scary part. There's a funny part to this too. How many guys out there, despite supposedly hating the abuse, were like, heck yeah, I would have checked up on my woman too? :laugh:

    When by brother was a low-level analyst, he said the hardest part was resisting the urge to check out or search for information on people he knew.

    It's a natural urge...which is probably why many simply assume there's more to the story.

    Moral of the story is don't know anyone in the NSA, CIA, etc.... :)

    Oh, and be nice to your brother, always, lol

    its much easier than having to stalk folks on twitter or Facebook. I'm guessing the folks that did it have probably been fired. Besides, this stuff is small potatoes. Cant wait for them to reveal that they intercept all that porn web traffic :jeez:
