James Bamford on "Five myths about the National Security Agency" (Washington Post, 6/21/2013).

His list:
1. The NSA is allowed to spy on everyone, everywhere.
2. The courts make sure that what the NSA does is legal.
3. Congress has a lot of oversight over the NSA.
4. NSA agents break into foreign locations to steal codes and plant bugs.
5. Snowden could have aired his concerns internally rather than leaking the documents.
