New Details On The Scope Of NSA Surveillance
According to documents declassified yesterday, in 2011 the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ruled a data collection method then being used by NSA was unconstitutional. It was a process that failed to specifically exclude thousands of emails and other electronic communications between Americans in this country. The opinion is the latest in a series of new details that shed light on the NSA’s massive surveillance operations -- an ongoing effort that can monitor an estimated 75 percent of the nation’s Internet communications.
