    So the spying is ONLY targeting "non-US persons" and the information collected is ONLY "metadata." The question is then, how do the NSA, FBI and the rest of the government connect the two dots? How would those entities determine whether the metadata was mined from non-US persons?

    The President insisted that there's oversight for all the data mining, and this is being reviewed regulary. Do we just take his word for it? Or do we just accept that politicians never lie, and they never abuse their power? Again, if everything is classified, is there proof that court orders were in PROPERLY reviewed and issued?
