This "Top 10 Most Inaccurate and Exaggerated NSA Stories" needed to be posted! ..

Thank you, she!

So much bullshit coming from greenwald and others.. so little time.

From your link...

3) NSA admits listening to U.S. phone calls without warrants.

That was the exact CNET headline. (Iím not sure how an agency can admit something, but I nitpick.) CNET chief political correspondent Declan McCullagh published a selectively edited exchange between Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and then-FBI Director Robert Mueller, and extrapolated their confusing and brief conversation into evidence that NSA has been eavesdropping on American citizens without any court orders or oversight. As we observed with Rep. Lewis this week, Rep. Nadler issued a statement the following day denying CNETís story. 24 hours later, like clockwork, McCullagh changed the headline and issued an update.

this is de rigueur for "Fighting back the Bullshit 101"!

Mahalo, she!
