NSA Employees Spied on Love Interests

The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday:
The LOVEINT violations involved overseas communications, officials said, such as spying on a partner or spouse. In each instance, the employee was punished either with an administrative action or termination. 
Most of the incidents, officials said, were self-reported. Such admissions can arise, for example, when an employee takes a polygraph tests as part of a renewal of a security clearance. 
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.), who chairs the Senate intelligence committee, said the NSA told her committee about a set of “isolated cases” that have occurred about once a year for the last 10 years, where NSA personnel have violated NSA procedures.
Since lie detector tests are no more accurate than flipping a coin, and Dianne Feisntein cannot be trusted, I don't believe these incidents are as rare as indicated.
