Agreed, so large you can drive a truck through it analogy.

Why is there not more of a furore about this? When Bush set up (and it was found out) about the extensive activities of the NSA, the reaction was vitriolic in every sense of the word. Here Obama is tacitly agreeing to similar intrusion. This is not a comment on Bush vs Obama, it is more a comment on the media and public reactions.

That's the problem with people-oriented politics. Who's going to complain? The people doing it now, or the people that did exactly the same thing earlier?
