Tice claimed that he held NSA wiretap orders targeting numerous members of the U.S. government, including one for a young senator from Illinois named Barack Obama.
"In the summer of 2004, one of the papers that I held in my hand was to wiretap a bunch of numbers associated with a forty-some-year-old senator from Illinois. You wouldn't happen to know where that guy lives now would you? It's a big White House in Washington D.C. That's who the NSA went after. That's the President of the United States now."
Tice added that he also saw orders to spy on Hillary Clinton, Senators John McCain and Diane Feinstein, then-Secretary of State Colin Powell, Gen. David Petraeus, and a current Supreme Court Justice.
That sounds like a lot of abuse of the rules that govern NSA domestic spying. And that's exactly what Tice is claiming.

I believe the NSA collects just about everything ,and sorts through it when they need information on a particular subject. They use search engines to find a specific person, date, time or location. They have your information but the odds that they will ever look at it are slim . Unless you make a threat of some kind . If you do that ,they will pull up everything you have ever posted on the net or said on the telephone.
