This is standard political tactic, to release some alternate news story to divert everyones attention away from the real story - *the real story is still NSA spying* on whom every they please. And arresting (and probably not charging with any actual crimes) anybody who speaks out about it.
As I understand it the FBI's role is primarily to protect American interests, does anybody else find it interesting that FBI director Robert Mueller is not forth coming with information and its seems that even the most basic information needs to be dragged out of him - like pulling teeth. Surely if everything is above board the FBI are indeed serving the interests of all Americans then this guy should be a little more open and informative about their activities. The question is Robert Mueller - what are you trying to hide.
