The Best Defense

Why did the White House advisory team on the NSA and communications raise red flags about NSA’s domestic operations?

Reading these comments from the White House advisory team on the NSA makes me (and others) wonder about domestic shoes that young Snowden may yet drop:

"Fundamentally, NSA is and should be a foreign intelligence organization. It should not be a domestic security service, a military command, or an information assurance organization. Because of its extraordinary capabilities, effective oversight must exist outside of the Agency."

And again:

"Like other agencies, there are situations in which NSA does and should provide support to the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, and other law enforcement entities. But it should not assume the lead for programs that are primarily domestic in nature."

Bart G., what you got cooking in the pot on this?
