Lawful Interception

With the latest revelations that the US government had been spying on the Europeans in Washington the concept of "Lawful Interception" comes to mind once more.

This activity has been going on for a while now and it is only being realized by the masses. How come in some instances it is okay for a government to monitor the activity of those that use the Internet when it comes to national security and it is an invasion of privacy in other cases?

To suddenly throw up ones hands and declare this as unacceptable denys that this has been going on for a long time. It is just the methods and technology that has changed.
