And you cloak it around "National Security" who's going to question it.
And now that cat's out of the bag, who can stop it?
It's all happening behind the curtains.
So public figures are telling people that the "Data Tapping" is simply looking for patterns of communication.
And perhaps crossing the lines of surveillance by reading people's private emails, text, etc.
