    I doubt if anyone will fess up but there are a number of agencies conducting internal surveillance, the FBI, DEA and Army to name a few. It might be a good idea to push Congress into finding out just how many, including contractors.

      ever get any kind of accurate answer on that.  I doubt there is a Congressperson or President that has a 'need to know' on all that happens.

      If debugging is the process of removing bugs, then programming must be the process of putting them in.

      Important as the NSA stuff is, it ain't the whole story.
