Pull The Other One...

...It has bells on it.

NSA surveillance programs helped foil terror plots in 20 countries

U.S. intelligence officials released newly declassified information Saturday, stating the National Security Agency’s controversial programs gathering millions of phone and email records helped foil “dozens of potential terror plots.”

The three-page document regarding the NSA programs was released to congressional intelligence committees, and states the plots were thwarted in the U.S. and more than 20 other countries.
...Except, of course, the Boston Marathon bombing.

'Scuse me if I call BullShit on this one....

umm, we said we were GATHERING info, we never said we'd figured out how to actually analyze it in a useful way.

He was also on 3 different watch lists so that should have taken care of it. It isn't like we actually were watching him.

We are treating terrorism as a law enforcement issue now and that means showing up after something happens to make a report and maybe investigate.
