NSA privacy violations not rare

2000 numbers that met the standard, and 16,000 that didn't:

The alert list grew from 3,980 in 2006 to 17,835 in 2009, one of the officials said. About 2,000 numbers on the list in 2009 met the necessary legal standard, the official said, meaning almost 16,000 didn’t. The alert list was shut down on Jan. 24, 2009, according to one of the declassified documents.

I wonder how many were LOVEINT? I bet a lot.
