Unmasking is supposed to be rare and only under FISA Court authority, certainly not for political oppo research.

I wonder what they are going to come up with. What are they going to say "We spy on who ever we damn well please like going after journalist that lord Obama told us to go after" Obama had more journalist and political adversaries thrown in jail than any other president combined. This is not speculation, it's confirmed that Obama used the intelligence services as a political weapon. Everyone knows this and the democrats are either ok with this or pretend that it didn't happen. Either way, they look like idiots.
