Even Congress can't get access to NSA information

US Congress

If you feel like you’re being left in the dark about the practices of the NSA, you’re not alone. Even the US Congress is being pushed away.

According to the Guardian:

Members of Congress have been repeatedly thwarted when attempting to learn basic information about the National Security Agency (NSA) and the secret FISA court which authorizes its activities, documents provided by two House members demonstrate.

It paints a picture of a rogue element of the US government that seems to be above the law and outside of the jurisdiction of oversight by the very people elected to monitor them. Do you believe that the NSA is overstepping its bounds?
