    Suspect that most of this MIGHT be less than optimum public relations by NSA and related agencies…

    From PEW Research:

    Few See Adequate Limits on NSA Surveillance Program
    But More Approve than Disapprove

    A majority of Americans – 56% – say that federal courts fail to provide adequate limits on the telephone and internet data the government is collecting as part of its anti-terrorism efforts. An even larger percentage (70%) believes that the government uses this data for purposes other than investigating terrorism.

    And despite the insistence by the president and other senior officials that only “metadata,” such as phone numbers and email addresses, is being collected, 63% think the government is also gathering information about the content of communications – with 27% believing the government has listened to or read their phone calls and emails.
