Unmasking for political purposes is wrong.
There. Now you have a firm statement of opinion from a "leftist" that agrees with your basic ethical premise.
The differentiation on this subject, as on most, is not whether it's wrong, or even if "unmasking" happened ... but whether it was done for political purposes.
I've seen opinion on that score, no proof.
Aside from that, I think it's time to call a spade a spade. Trump and his Administration have access to EVERYTHING now ... why is there any mystery at all about a) who did what and b) why they did it?
In typical partisan fashion let me paraphrase your statement.
If you don't like what I have to say you yourself should provide rebuttal.
You could, at the very least, offer some substance to your position by authoring your own thread(s) demonstrating with evidence and articulation why your disdain for Trump is justified.
I was pointing out how stupid it is to believe the media has the whole story in either casend and the hypocrisy involved.
Ps and his immigration control ideas that don't go after the employers first and foremost. Which is where the root is.
is that you in the picture

Check his "thinking" on the 1st Amendment and Conspiracy Theories !!
An older article about this unmasking.....
Most names in such intelligence reports are masked to protect privacy, but last year government officials requested that 1,934 identities — not initially revealed in the NSA reports — be unmasked in order to understand the intelligence being conveyed. In 2015, government officials requested the unmasking of 2,232 identities.
If your workforce has to be everified mandatory and also the know culprits are raided and extremely punished the word of mouth alone will stop people coming. The employers should be made to pay for the mess they created.
The problem is the employers are allowed to operate with millions of illegals. Both the Democrats and Republicans benefit from this and won't do anything to solve it.
