Color me surprised

The NSA's wiretapping program is apparently capturing (wait for it) telecommunications traffic (just a little longer) of American citizens in violation of the law.

In case you were wondering how this could happen, the program installed equipment at access points across the country. Read the details here. They weren't, you know, tapping specific phones. They were tapping the entire internet, sifting through all the traffic (in effect, reading your emails and keeping track of which porn sites you like) and we're supposed to believe them that they were only looking at the stuff that was terrorism related.

Needless to say, our Representatives and Senators were really stupid to think this COULD be limited, let alone would be limited.
