How is the NSA's "telepresence" functionally different from and NSA "soldier" actually being there?
Is the NSA compensating for electricity, cooling and bandwidth of their telepresenced agents(s)??
What's even more disappointing is that the current administration has made very few critical statements of these agencies and their policies, preferring to make small noises about "balance" and "debate." It, too, had an opportunity to roll this back, but instead chose to extend and expand the policies put in place by the previous administration.
