The London Guardian's Glenn Greenwald revealed in a July 31 exposé that the NSA has indeed been collecting the full text of every American's e-mails without a warrant under the XKeyscore program, flatly contradicting the claims of congressional opponents of the Amash amendment last week.The Amash amendment would have denied the NSA the ability to snoop on Americans without a warrant or National Security letter under Section 215 of the Patriot Act.

If the NSA is snooping on SK hope they are listening to the sermons for salvation. I doubt they would find the forum too exciting.Bearmaster
