Comment: the whole press release was a red herring.

(See in situ)


the whole press release was a red herring.

first of all, monitoring foreign communication has always been the job of the NSA. So if they happen to prevent a terrorist" plot by monitoring a phone call that's irrelevant. The issue with the whistleblowing was all of the domestic monitoring which was not what they were supposed to be doing. Amazing how many people forget what the actual whistleblowing was about.
