25. I can do selective quotes, too!

First of all, upstream collection by the NSA is a well-known fact.

Secondly, Mark Klein revelations was about programs that happened under BUSH in 2006, and helped lead to the investigation by Congress and the new law passed by congress in 2008

The conclusion of DiFi's statement from YOUR second link:

This bundling is done by Internet companies in order to make it easier to send information quickly over the telecom lines that make up the Internet. Unfortunately, NSA’s technical systems could not easily separate the individual messages within these bundles. And the result was that NSA collected some e-mail messages it did not intend to acquire.

OK. We held a lengthy hearing on the court’s ruling on October 20, 2011, at which General Alexander and Lisa Monaco — then the assistant attorney general for national security — described the court’s ruling and what they were doing to address it.

Here’s my point: It was a mistake. Action was taken immediately to correct it. It came to us. We took action

Granted the OPINION piece then goes to say that "immediate" is laughable, because the incident happened in 2008 - under BUSH.

The real issue here is that the problem was FIXED before Snowden's "revelations".
