"They turned the NSA on the American public"

Remarkable story.

This is Bloomberg business news segment, hardly a socially progressive outlet.

James Bamford is THE expert on the NSA. He's been writing about it for decades.

Richard Falkenrath, one of the hogs gorging himself on the post-911 windfall for spooks, talks about how great things are.

Bamford raises the obvious, logical point that eludes people like Falkenrath who line their pockets by riding the "terrorist" hysteria wave:

Collecting huge amounts of random data creates a lot of "noise" which makes it MORE difficult, not easier to detect potential terrorist attacks.
