Turns out its 2776 incidents in ONE YEAR.
And those are just the violations they admit to, the ones that go beyond the incredibly lax standards they use. Don't forget that the millions of calls metadata they do, they don't consider that an incident since thats authorized.
Also, just ONE of those incidents violated specific court orders and involved 3000 americans.
One error included when they accidentally (supposedly anyway) programmed it to look at area code 202 (washington DC) instead of 20 (a foreign country) and incorrectly gathered a "large number" of calls. They won't say anything beyond that it was a "large number".
And the error rate increased despite a quadrupling of internal oversight staff
