Try again. Compromising does not create trust but the ability of the citizens to believe the Govt including and probably most important that the executive branch does not abuse its power.

In a free society the people within the government are supposed to be open and transparent while citizens enjoy privacy. What, then, do you call a society where the government is ultra secretive and all citizens are spied on by the state?

The title of the article and the results still stand-the majority of Americans disapprove of it being used on ordinary Americans.
You are easily confused.
From your article:

"When asked if the government's collection of Americans' phone call records is a necessary tool to help find terrorists, a slight majority of 53 percent say it is."

"But fewer Americans are concerned about their own personal communications being monitored. Just over a third is at least somewhat concerned about the government collecting their own phone records (38 percent) and monitoring their internet use (35 percent); six in 10 are not concerned."

"Asked if the government has gone too far in infringing on people's privacy in its efforts to fight terrorism, 46 percent think the balance is about right..... 36 percent say the government has gone too far" and "13 percent think the government hasn't gone far enough."

Humorously ironic actually.

Hey, skippy, you failed to provide even one link to back up your claims.
You also notably have failed to address the fact that the WH failed to stay in communication with Panetta after the briefing.
The WH did not respond to any communications from the Pentagon.
Real Dave didn't need 'links'. He back up his claims with reason ,logic, argument, and some relevant historical perspective. Good show,RealDave! Why can't you do the same 'Whatever'?

When Obama met with GWB after his election, Bush handed him two letters and told him "open the first letter when you get in a hopeless situation".
After the Benghazi scandal broke, barack opened the first letter and it said "blame everything on me, and open letter #2 if it happens again".
When the IRS, Prism, and AP scandals broke, barack opened the 2nd letter. It said "sit down and write two letters".
Just a matter of time for this lame duck now......
Except , Obama is a lot smarter and moral than stoopid Bush jr.

You post this earlier.

I responded that this does NOT change the main finding of the study that Americans disapprove of this being utilize on ordinary Americans.

You propose a cherry picking fallacy. A fallacy as the Title and Main emphasis of the POLL was the Disapproval that I noted.

What is wrong with you that you have forgotten so soon?
