    The National Security Agency is facing renewed scrutiny over the extent of its domestic surveillance program, with critics in Congress saying its recent intercepts of the private telephone calls and e-mail messages of Americans are broader than previously acknowledged, current and former officials said.
    The agency’s monitoring of domestic e-mail messages, in particular, has posed longstanding legal and logistical difficulties, the officials said.

    Nothing new. People who think they are safe to be private on the internet, need a reality check.

    I can just see it now...first the mysterious phone calls, and then the black vans outside the house. My assets will surely be frozen, and finally some guys dressed in black rain coats walking up to the door. The next day my wife wonders where the hell I disappeared to. Damn...this isn't good for me at all, thanks for ruining my day.

    Trillions of emails each day ... trust me, no matter what, they can't read ALL your mail, they just skim some of them at most.

    So, understanding that what they "skim" through is for the purpose of detecting possible terrorist activity, what's the point?
