You know, many of us have jobs that are dangerous AND are surrounded by idiots. However, we don't get to shove old ladies around, or make criminal cases against people we don't like. That is a pathetic excuse.
Hypothesize a mail-list for Syria/Iran, and a spambot sending out encrypted messages from random email address in US (typical behavior of spambots). How long until it fills the NSA's new facility? Show your work.
Well, actually, there are many levels ABOVE TS, most used for clarification for who has a "need to know". So maybe it's right to say three, but the top one is further subdivided.

Shouldn't they be able to assume that they have a license up until they are notified that they no longer do, since initially they did?
