    "secretly interpreted".

    Does not make sense. I just figure stuff is like "Enemy of the State" without all the bad guys getting caught.

      Ever since the safeguards were put in place after the Nixon scandals lobbyists/ authoritys and gawd knows who else have worked to undermine them.

       Even during Bushs term I was not so much as mind-boggled as outraged. The gov. has done a propaganda job on public that has worked as well as anything done during WW2. It has taken so long to get this real info out that people have had time to realize they are seemingly powerless to reverse the course. While that is not true yet, we are close and it may only be the people trust of Obama that has stopped some people from reacting with more vigor. I see that as a reason to worry more as it becomes more deeply intrenched in our legal system.
