"It was simply a decision to tell NSA to turn its antennae inward rather than outward."

But as Rick Francona pointed out here, that violates USSID 18. Domestic surveillance of was supposedly anathema at NSA. I take it the reason court orders, FISA warrants, writs, etc. were irrelevant to NSA was that NSA was in the past very scrupulous about surveilling only foreign targets and so was not part of the judicial system. But they can't continue to claim that exemption once they begin domestic surveillance, orders or not. Surely that was at the heart of the decision to leak. (What btw has happened to the leakers in the year that the NYT has sat on the story at WH request?)
