NSA Abuse and Incompetence, Time To Shut It Down

If the idiots and clowns running the NSA were half as smart and competent as they think they are, Snowden would have never been able to spend months downloading top secret documents right under their noses, and NSA employees wouldn't be able to cyberstalk ex-girlfriends and otherwise abuse NSA policies --

630WPRO.COM | The Voice of Rhode Island - NSA Employees Cyber-Stalked Crushes [From ABC News]: " . . . The incidents, 12 in total and most romantic in nature, were revealed in response to a request from Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who asked last month that the NSA provide more information on “the intentional and willful misuse of surveillance authorities by NSA employees.” For months major news organizations have reported never-before-seen details of the NSA’s incredible surveillance powers -- both foreign and domestic -- based on a trove of intelligence documents allegedly stolen by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. Snowden, charged with espionage-related crimes in the U.S., is currently living in Russia on temporary asylum. . . ."

It is past time to shut down the NSA and transfer that part of NSA that has a mission-critical security role, to the CIA or some other less inept intelligence agency.
