OK, good legislation intent, but a few points on this subject. The NSA is not the only agency doing this, what about the others? All of the agencies have lied about this subject to the citizens and congress (ex-AT&T employees have told us this program started at least by 1998, not 2001 like we were told), why should we believe them now? Will there be inspectors to ensure the agencies have complied with the law? NSA has been passing information on to other agencies (think DEA and FBI), when these agencies use this information in court against citizens they go to great lengths to make sure the defense teams and the courts don’t find out where the prosecutors got their info. from, is this going to stop? There are many other devices used to spy on the American people, will this law apply to all methods of spying? Without these issues being addressed, this legislation wont even come close to the “Put a Stake in the Heart” of NSA’s domestic spying, this article claims.
To those of you who believe of the alphabets are telling the truth, or thinks this legislation will work without severe jail terms for breaking it, I’ve got some waterfront property in AZ I want to sell you.
