According to the Associated Press and newly released documents, the National Security Agency collected thousands of emails belonging to Americans with no ties to terrorism.

The nations' top intelligence official is declassifying three secret U.S. court opinions showing how the National Security Agency scooped up as many as 56,000 emails annually over three years and other communications by Americans with no connection to terrorism, how it revealed the error to the court and changed how it gathered Internet communications.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper authorized the release Wednesday.

The opinions show that when the NSA reported to the court in 2011 that it was inadvertently collecting as many as 56,000 Internet communications by Americans with no collection to terrorism, the court ordered the NSA to find ways to limit what it collects and how long it keeps it.
Two weeks ago, President Obama reiterated promises that the NSA does not have a domestic spying program during an interview with Jay Leno.
“We don’t have a domestic spying program,” Obama said, according to the media pool report.“What we do have is some mechanisms that can track a phone number or an email address that is connected to a terrorist attack.... That information is useful.”

Well said, Hillary Rval Clinton :)

That sentence pretty much sums up the entire liberal party's mentality when it comes to letting the government do whatever they want ( as long as a democrat is in office).

Correction: as long as they don't get in the bedroom. That is the only room the liberals don't want you in. The rest? That's all hunky dory.
