One 'accidental' lapse and its "I told you so"

This is but a short lived 'victory'.

In a few months, maybe a year or two to be sure, there will be an act of 'terrorism' that will slip past the NSA and FBI 'Accidentally'.

An investigation will take place and it will be found that the alphabet agencies were unable to stop the event because they came up on a brick wall when trying to collect the required data.

Cue "we told you so" and the allowance of even greater surveillance, all in the name of protecting peoples freedoms.
