Oh I'm sure this is just fine

Never -- EVER -- would be abused.

The National Security Agency has acknowledged in a new classified briefing that it does not need court authorization to listen to domestic phone calls.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat, disclosed this week that during a secret briefing to members of Congress, he was told that the contents of a phone call could be accessed “simply based on an analyst deciding that.”

If the NSA wants “to listen to the phone,” an analyst’s decision is sufficient, without any other legal authorization required, Nadler said he learned. “I was rather startled,” said Nadler, an attorney and congressman who serves on the House Judiciary committee.

But don't worry woman who dumped that current NSA employee when you were both in college.

The story needs to be read carefully. The NSA didn't acknowlege anything -- the congressman did. Is he credible?
