However, what is surprising is the fact that the government has created a secret interpretation of the law that they claim says that they are allowed to do this.Really? When there are secret laws, secret courts and secret orders, why do you think the secrecy is needed at all?
Hint: the terrorists don't really care about the number of FISA orders granted, or about broad orders that request data from telecoms; they know very well that electronic communications can (and will) be intercepted. Proof by reductio ad absurdum: otherwise they would be incarcerated by now. However, the general populace do care about these small details, as seen in the response to Snowden's revelations.
