Response to Recursion (Reply #13)

18. I would add #4: The FISA court secretly ruled some of what the NSA was doing

 

'unconstitutional.' But because everything is shrouded in an all-enveloping secrecy, no one knows for sure what exactly was unconstitutional, nor what steps the NSA may have taken to rectify the constitutionality issue (which it supposedly did, but because everything is secret, no one who would know is allowed to say and those who don't know can only speculate).

And I apologize if I have mis-construed all the cloak-and-dagger-y stuff.

Argh, this is but one more evil of a secret government - it's like those 19th-century psychics who would read tea leaves or something. And I'm strictly a coffee drinker
