    You know that the answer to this ...

    ... assess whether, in light of advancements in communications technologies, the United States employs its technical collection capabilities in a manner that optimally protects our national security and advances our foreign policy while appropriately accounting for other policy considerations, such as the risk of unauthorized disclosure and our need to maintain the public trust.
    Can only be that yes, it does.

    The questions that I want answered are these:

    * How many times has the NSA intercepted and stored my personal communications within the last ten years?
    * How many times has that information been accessed in the process of an investigation?
    * Once accessed, what other parties, including law enforcement and banks and other big business entities, have been given the information?
    * Has a dossier for me been assembed from this information?
    * If so, what does it contain?

    I won't be satisfied with an investigation that doesn't either 1) answer these questions or 2) produce a set of tools and procedures that I can use to find this out for myself.
