  •  'omnibus authorizations (8+ / 0-)

    for bulk collection and analysis based on “reasonable articulable suspicion” of terrorist connections."

    If one has reasonable articulable suspicions, then omnibus authorizations for bulk collections would be entirely unnecessary.  If one cahas reasonable suspicions specific enough to be articulable, one would target one's collections against those with the terrorist connections that  have identified in one's articulated suspicions. Because, 'any given American could be a terrorist or terrorist sympathizer', is paranoid delusion, not reasonable suspicion.
