The Obama administration on Wednesday declassified opinions from a secret court that oversees government surveillance showing the National Security Agency was broadly collecting domestic Internet communications of Americans and misrepresenting the scope of that effort to the court.The FISA so-called "court" being misled by the NSA is an interesting concept, on the order of Tessio being misled by Clemenza. Both are fully-integrated components of the same organized crime family.
The three opinions include one from October 2011 by U.S. District Judge John Bates, who scolded government lawyers that the NSA had, for the third time in less than three years, belatedly acknowledged it was collecting more data than it was legally allowed to."NSA acquires valuable information through its upstream collection, but not without substantial intrusions on Fourth Amendment protected interests," Bates wrote.
The US regime is quite clear on who its enemies are. Its enemies are anyone and anything other than itself, with a few minor exceptions: subordinate toadies like the UK regime. Bradley Manning is the enemy. Edward Snowden is the enemy. Julian Assange is the enemy. And, by the way, you're the enemy. As am I.
