    See, not so bad afterall, not even a scandal

    AMERICANS LIKE IT WHEN SOMEONE WATCHES: POLL - WaPo: "A large majority of Americans say the federal government should focus on investigating possible terrorist threats even if personal privacy is compromised, and most support the blanket tracking of telephone records in an effort to uncover terrorist activity, according to a new Washington Post-Pew Research Center poll. Fully 45 percent of all Americans say the government should be able to go further than it is now asserting: that it should be able to monitor everyone's online activity if this would prevent future terrorist attacks. A slender majority, 52 percent, say no such broad-based monitoring should occur. Overall, 56 percent of all Americans see the NSA's accessing telephone call records of millions of Americans through secret court orders as "acceptable;" 41 percent call the practice 'unacceptable.' In 2006, when news broke of the NSA's monitoring telephone and e-mail communications without court approval, there was initially a closer 51 percent to 47 percent divide on the practice."Fully 69 percent of Democrats say terrorism investigations should be the government's main concern, not privacy, an 18-percentage-point jump from early January 2006, when the NSA activity under the Bush administration was first reported. Compared with that time, Republicans' focus on privacy has jumped 22 points." [WaPo]
