Indeed... it is always balanced by an asymmetrical amount of stupidity...see

but grief and pain, for promised joy....end of quote.  One of my most favourite 



Another little bit of cleverness is when Diane Roark asks for the metadata of 
the emails she is asking to be returned...


She argues....

quote<<< email metadata should be supplied. Since the New York Times 
revelations of December 2005 and the Snowden revelations from June 2013 to the 
present, we know that NSA has a great deal of experience at autatically 
collecting, storing and handling metadata, in massive bulk. NSA has 
consistently argued that metadata is not an invasion of privacy or too 
revelatory and that citizens should not be upset about its collection, 
therefore the Agency can have no objection. >>>end of quote.

If this observation is accepted by the court, then everyone will be able to get 
the metadata they require under the Freedom of Information Act.


Being conscious of  my age, one discovers that no amount of cleverness can 
avoid the eventual appointment with the grim reaper...Such is reality...:-).

I am really enjoying this case...though it is rather long and difficult to 
understand in bits.  She is very clever in some respects...and very, very 
determined that the NSA/FBI are not going to get away with all their illegal 
“surreptitious” searches and cover ups.  She has offered the NSA some cheap 
software which allows them to quickly find if any elements of a classified 
document is out there in the public domain.  The NSA has been unable to argue 
time or staff constraints because of this, and have had to say that they have 
sufficient resources to do this.  She is also providing a little booklet to 
help educate the judge in how to handle classified information in a court case, 
and is cleverly using previous case law and actions against her colleagues to 
show that the documents which she is asking for the return of, are in fact in 
the public domain.  The NSA, of course does not want to use such a piece of 
software, as it has its own...much better, more sophisticated and expensive 
equipment for tracking classified documents....Ha! Ha! Ha!.

For an explanation of how the software works...back to Dr. Watson and the 
gullibility factor...:-).
