Reading those spy books

Stuart Buck on NSA spying,
A lot of people were shocked, or at least pretended to be shocked, that since 2002, Bush has authorized the NSA to spy on a number of international calls made by Americans with close ties to Al Qaeda. Maybe it's the fiction that I tend to read, or maybe it's the books that I've read about the intelligence community, but I'd be shocked to find out that there was anything that the NSA's computers didn't monitor. That's not to say anything about whether such monitoring is appropriate; it's just a matter of what one expects.
