Spying on Americans Accusation

I think the media and as a result, the public is missing out some vital information regarding these accusations of using the NSA to supposedly spy on Americans. This is just a heads up as I am currently doing a little bit of research on this and will put something up in the next day or two.

The general belief is that the NSA is used for international spying and the FBI for domestic work. That in a very large sense is correct. However, most of us know that in reality, things are not always so simple. Especially when there are still issues (some technical, some not) regarding information or intelligence sharing between different agencies that serve this country.

I am not going to jump on the bandwagon to condemn a President that has a difficult job. There is also some evidence that previous presidents have authorized similiar activities. See this one. So it is entirely possible that some politicians are making a mountain out of a molehill.

No, I have not yet forgotten Franklin's quote:

Those willing to give up a little liberty for a little security deserve neither security nor liberty.
