NSA Spy Scandal: A Conspiracy So Vast – Judge Andrew Napolitano

The NSA conspiracy that Edward Snowden revealed is vast. It involves former President George W. Bush, President Obama and their aides, a dozen or so members of Congress, federal judges, executives and technicians at American computer ISPs and telecoms, and the thousands of NSA employees and vendors who have manipulated their fellow conspirators.
