    I know one thing for sure, if this were President Romney, the outrage would be 10 times worse, not only from the world, but from the U.S. press.

    Truth is, I am glad that an agency like the NSA is spying on people, because one day they may very well get the goods on the dirty nuclear bomb that has been smuggled into some major U.S. city. If that happens, and thousands if not millions of lives are saved, then the idea of my e-mails or phone conversations being listened to will have been OK with me. What I won't put up with is some government official, Obama on down, using information from that system for political gain and or to destroy a political opponent. That is where the line will have been crossed. You talk about seperation of church and state? I talk about seperation of the intellgence community and politics. Nixon tried to use them for his purposes, and any President who would do so should be impeached and convicted. The CIA, FBI and others have to be as non political as possible.

    fox sci fi more like it. most likley the nsa does not tell anyone much of anthting since the brilliant patriot act burns the constitution. iprioning people without trial is wrong it needs to be gotton rid of. our original patriots fought to get away from laws like it.

    I doubt Obama knew about this.

    Like other scandals, probably first heard about this on Fox news.
