More misplaced blame?

I don't blame Verizon for having to comply with the recently leaked FISA court order. There's no knowing if they objected to it or not, but in the end they had to comply.  I don't blame Obama, either, as the practice started before he became president.

I blame the so-called "Patriot" Act for allowing such an order to be created, the NSA for asking for it, and both the NSA and FISC for not limiting the scope of the call record request like they should have done (though, they kind of did, by only making phone numbers and timestamps part of the data). It also makes me wonder if either of them have heard of burner phones, which aren't limited to the world of fiction.
