NSA Admits: Okay, Okay, There Have Been A Bunch Of Intentional Abuses, Including Spying On Love Interests

quote:
the NSA finally put out an official statement admitting to an average of one intentional abuser per year over the past ten years. The AP is reporting that at least one of the abuses involved an NSA employee spying on a former spouse. Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal suggests that spying on love interests happens somewhat more often:
The practice isn’t frequent — one official estimated a handful of cases in the last decade — but it’s common enough to garner its own spycraft label: LOVEINT.

Gimme a break. Several high profile people got caught having affairs and have had to resign.
And they got caught at such an opportune moment when they were disagreeing or going against Fed wishes.

It's called stalking and it's illegal. The frequency is irrelevant. The NSA needs shut down.

The NSA has the backing and funding from both parties in Congress and the President.
And a secret court keeps the secrets safe.

Snowden's revelations are probably the tip of the iceberg here.

But LOVEINT makes it sound so innocent.

A love letter to the NSA agent who is monitoring my online activity.

Ohhhhh...yep! Lol, the NSA are some super spooky kinda guys. The best nerds in the cyber world work for the NSA. Poking into affairs is small time stuff. A cyber spook poking into his exes new fling is small time stuff. Sure it happens. Does a bear s***in in the woods?! Someone who has access to that kind of snoopitave power, WILL be sorely tempted, anx more often than not, will use it for personal reasons. It's a gimme. When they get caught, they damn sure should be held accountable for it, and THAT'S the issue. They aint.

Government agencies are masterful at ducking scandal. That's what tbe employ thousands of people to do. Good luck with this issue being resolved. Just business as usual.

What is truly amazing, is time after time they are caught saying or doing the complete opposite of what is publicly stated and little if anything is done.
