So if I understand it, we are supposed to be all worked up that NSA is mining every.single.detail.of.our.lives and storing that data in Utah, while listening to every single conversation that takes place on the planet.
And, yet, they missed that an individual that works in their offices in Hawaii just happened to print out or copy highly classified documents, book a flight to Hong Kong, and chat up the Guardian.
Might it just possibly be that the explanation of Mr. Clapper is accurate, that there ISN'T a big database in the sky watching the innocent (and not so innocent) actions of every single American?
Here is a guy that had given up his right to avoid scrutiny by accepting a security clearance, and HE wasn't even being watched, maybe it really is that only the bad guys are being watched.
Or maybe the President has a TV where he can tune into any particular American and watch them in real time.
