Pelosi: Report of NSA Violations 'Extremely Disturbing'

Can't have oversight when overseers aren't given information

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) said on Friday that a report that the National Security Agency broke privacy rules thousands of times per year is "extremely disturbing."

She argued that under the law, the NSA should have reported the violations to Congress and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Court. 

"Congress must conduct rigorous oversight to ensure that all incidents of non-compliance are reported to the oversight committees and the FISA court in a timely and comprehensive manner, and that appropriate steps are taken to ensure violations are not repeated," she said in the statement.
