This whole, long post could have been shortened right after the first quote, "Do I, as an American, have any concerns about whether the NSA is illegally or surreptitiously targeting or tracking the communications of other Americans?"
I'm not really concerned about others either, just myself, family, and friends.
That press conference was a delaying tactic. The next step is shutting down Congress, tearing up the constitution, and becoming a complete police state. Like the Soviet Union really wanted to be. Then the final step is World Domination!! :>
Why were those supposed emails in the clear and not encrypted? or were they? This sounds more like US propaganda than anything else. You would think real terrorist would encrypt their email communications.
