According to the top lawyers of the NSA and FBI, their PRISM Internet program doesn’t search for keywords, but rather looks for dodgy email addresses and phone numbers. In other words, it doesn’t quite work the way you thought.
The authorities told the public hearing that the National Security Agency didn’t want to scoop up all online transmissions, but the surveillance was rather tailored to track or uncover terror suspects and other national threats. Talking about the NSA email spying, the attorneys said that the agency is “trying to figure out what it wants and gets that specifically”.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence also claimed that it was targeted collection rather than bulk collection. But they seem to forget they are talking about PRISM – the program focused on foreign suspects outside the US. PRISM is subject to less virulent criticism than the other main clandestine operation disclosed by the agency’s ex-contractor Edward Snowden back in 2013, which was the NSA’s mass telephone metadata program collecting data on phone calls by most US citizens.
At the moment, the board is conducting a review of PRISM and other programs of the National Security Agency, which can draw “upstream” data directly off the Internet’s backbone.The agency argued that such programs are "compulsory legal" and that untargeted information is not stored.In the meantime, it is known that the default retention period for PRISM information collected from online companies is 5 years, and upstream data is kept for 2 years, according to the board.
The FBI lawyers told the board that the data collection from such web giants as Apple, Google and Microsoft is done with their knowledge.

|2 reasons why you should not believe him. first, is a lawyer, second, is a NSA lawyer.|
|nsa makes me fart too|
|These guys are liars and they've demonstrated it repeatedly and #1 is right.|
They said they didn't do that stuff to Congress when congress MEMBERS were briefed, and should know what's going on but they didn't say Clapper is lying. They're all in on it, and it's a cold war against the public. They can't be honest about it without risking treason charges and firing squads.
So they lie, and the next day the documents come out exposing the lie and they just lie some more until those treason charges come. That or until they manage to send swarms of HELLADS drones with 150KW lasers on them after anyone that might file such charges.
|Since internal spying on USA citizens was the reason for Bill Binneys resignation in 2001 I hardly think Mr Snowdens revelations of the same are any great news in fact most of what Snowden has said has been well known and previously revealed and his whistle blowing has merely reinforced what we have known for some years since the NSA/CIA whitepaper in 2001 that the NSA will use its foreign partners and any measures to gain total global domination of cyberspace,what the NSA and other agencies can not forsee is the fact that all their allies will at some point get the hump with being dictated to by them and will cut the cord and self monitor for the internal security of their own country since they will come to realize they are being used by America to give away the keys to the kingdom and with it any security they may have previously had.|
|please tell me how to think|
