Preposterous. 'Just following orders' (or, 'Just following our directive', as it were) is no excuse. Every human being has an inalienable set of rights, and surveillance violates these rights; culpability for that violation exists regardless of the NSA's ostensibly-foreign 'jurisdiction'.

Except people do call pieces of paper (and, more commonly, things drawn on them) 'two dimensional'. With great frequency. It's entirely consistent to call something five atoms thick, where the axis perpendicular to its plane is pretty much entirely irrelevant to its design, 'two dimensional'.
