Galt thinks there may be two reasons.<quoted text>
My point exactly. If this was so important and effective why all these missed targets who had left their fingerprints all over the exact places PRISM was watching? How about Snowden, Manning et. al.? I find it hard to swallow that the program performed as they're claiming it did, I wouldn't expect them to come out and say it was a flop.
First, the NSA is casting too wide a net instead of focusing on the most likely problems.
Second, the NSA is spending only a fraction of its time and effort on terrorism and instead directing assets to snooping for other purposes.
Or, maybe you are correct and the program is totally ineffective.
