Friday Sync-Up: NSA on US Networks?

Every Friday, I present a topic or question for our merry band of thinkers, leaders, and pirates to discuss in an open thread. Here is this week’s conversation starter:

National Security Agency Director Gen. Paul Nakasone told lawmakers this week that foreign hackers are exploiting his agency’s “blind spot” – domestic Internet activity. 

“Our adversaries understand that they can come into the United States and rapidly utilize an Internet service provider, come up and do their activities, and then take that down before a warrant can be issued, before we can actually have surveillance by a civilian authority here in the United States.”

Question: Should the NSA be allowed to operate on US civilian networks?
