> I don’t care if the NSA is spying on US citizens because their job is national security

Since when is the NSA supposed to spy on their own citizens by default? They should only target individuals that represent risk anyway. (if they were respecting the constitution)

If they were respecting the constitution, they should only target individuals for which they have a warrant (assuming we're talking about US citizens). Even then, it's my understanding that this is the job of the police, rather than the military.


Thank you for understanding this. I've been looking for someone to point this out.
