The unfortunate part is that they have gone way beyond their charter. Also as a side note, this type of agency is only needed when one has enemies.
Controlling other countries politics, setting up puppet dictatorships, getting rid of legitimately elected heads of states in other countries, running
drugs, economic espionage, just to name a few of the non-charter things the NSA has been up to.
It's called blow back. Sticking your nose where it doesn't belong creates enemies. So you create your own enemies then you need more spying to
control the blowback.
Sorry, but with any spying agency, your only as "good" as you get.
I respectfully disagree with your observations.
If the NSA ONLY protected the US and I'm not saying economically, we wouldn't be in the position we are in today. To be fair the US is not the
only country complicit in this, but seems to be the head of the octopus. remember the logo plastered on the latest spy satellite sent into space by
the NSA? It was an octopus gripping the earth. Octopi have eight tentacles which I take to mean there are 8 major countries in on this. G8?
The charter is to protect the United States, not the corporate interests of those entities residing in the US.
If the USA wanted peace it would have stuck to it's charter and the US constitution.
