At long last Nancy Pelosi discovers an NSA action she finds 'extremely disturbing' — breaking privacy rules 3,000 times

Politico's Tal Kopan reports that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called a report that the National Security Agency broke privacy rules thousands of times “extremely disturbing” on Friday, saying actions must be taken.
“Congress must conduct rigorous oversight to ensure that all incidents of noncompliance are reported to the oversight committees and the FISA court in a timely and comprehensive manner, and that appropriate steps are taken to ensure violations are not repeated,” Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in a statement.
     The report was published in The Washington Post yesterday. It said a May 2012 audit of the NSA found nearly 3,000 violations in the previous 12 months.
     Pelosi did not specify what actions should be taken.
