    Robert Litt's Version of English

    [T]he NSA has a different definition of "abuse" than most people. After LOVEINT was brought up to Director of National Intelligence general counsel Robert Litt on a conference call with reporters, he replied: "I'm using abuse in a slightly more limited term."

    Right. Litt meant that nobody has ever, EVER, used NSA powers to listen to giraffes in the Cleveland Zoo mate. That's the "abuse" he was talking about. Am I the only one who thinks he speaks precisely?
