Yup.  Deeper than that, they are now engaged in propaganda and long term 
political manipulation of the mente americanus:

While NSA had incercepted some of Midhar's conversations with persons in 
an al-Qa'ida safe house in Yemen in that period, NSA did not have the US 
phone number or any indication that the phone Midhar was using was 
located in San Diego. NSA did not have the tools or the database to 
search to identify these connections and share them with the FBI. 
Several programmes to address.......

The policy goal is to go domestic.  The public is being prepared.  (The 
needs for court approval will also fall by the wayside.)

Oh well.  This is a domestic USA issue, nothing interesting here for us 
foreigners.  We're already signed up for their loyalty programme.
