I'll admit, I suffer from BKAC errors all the time, but they're getting better day by day. (between keyboard and chair)

Employee mistakes? More proof that the government is the employer of last resort.

Reuters: 'Nearly 3,000 violations of Americans’ privacy, mentioned in the National Security Agency’s internal audit recently leaked by former contractor Edward Snowden, weren’t “willful” and are results of mistakes by employees, the agency claimed.'

I d like to see them explain the massive number of privacy violations caused by when they were using computer algorithums to search through their database containing trillions of records. These violations would have to be considered intensional.

There not MISTAKES they were breaking the Law every 3 Hours. The only MISTAKE was somebody found out about it.
And reporting these MISTAKES is serious breach of the Criminal Code punishable by Death.

So in Umerica, it is acceptable to break the Law, it is not acceptable to report somebody breaking the Law.
I think Homeland Security should rewrite their catchphrase:
If you see something, look away and run.

Whitewash in progress.......All these politicians from the USA pushing for the Surveillance State are sick, depraved, power hungry human beings . No different from the Naczis or the Mossad.

When I read this articles headline: "NSA blames 3,000 leaked privacy violations on ‘employee mistakes’" I imagine those thinking up these ridiculous excuses as very old men shaking with fear behind locked doors afraid of what's on the other side.

They're afraid, and it's easily seen. Their whole reputation is now kaput, and the entire administration is swimming in embarrassment. This is simply great.

There we go! It's the employees fault, not the government's. I'm sure all the secret assasinations and interference in other nations affairs is the employees fault as well. Get a life, NSA!

So in other words the NSA employ's people that can't do their jobs properly or are morons and can't follow guidelines. I think the morons are the ones who think that we actually buy into the propaganda they shovel out like manure.
