It monitors foreign communications that are 51% proven to be foreign. The rest goes into an archive somewhere. I'm not sure I like their batting average. A 60 you could excuse, but 51% is just terrible. And they don't dump the information that's proven not to be foreign. Not sure I like these KGB style tactics that are really ineffective. The fact that the Boston bombing even occurred proves how reliable this system is. Or at least it does for me. But no, "TAKE MY RIGHTS! Just take 'em! I'm not using them. Free speech? What is that? Unreasonable search and seizures? Hell...you can have my computer and return it to me with all the info deleted. My guns? Well...you can't touch them because Jesus." Here's Lindsey Graham's take on it: Link Clearly terrorists are everywhere. This comes from the mind of a man who sees danger wherever he goes and enemies in everything he does. This is why I hate conservatives, right here, because it's this infantile, "Protect me I can't help myself!" Mentality. No, these turds have no problem with Big Gubmit when it's spying on everyone. Actually, put like that...I can see why they have a vested interest in what goes on in people's bedrooms: that way they know you're not having any of that scandalous terrorist-y sex that's all the rage. You know, you strap a bomb vest to your lover and see if you can finish before the timer goes off. I hear it's excellent cardio.
