NSA gains power from US Court - fixedByVonnie

NSA gains power from US Court

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (known as FISC) has created a secret law that grants the NSA power to corral data from US citizens in special circumstances.

The law is close to 100 pages and gives the NSA the right to appropriate data from terrorist suspects and also people involved in cyber attacks, espionage and nuclear proliferation.

FISA has become the de facto court of surveillance issues.  Congress created it in 1978 to guard wiretapping abuses by the government.  But recently, the 11 judges who serve seven-year terms have been dealing with questions about new technologies and under what circumstances the government can get access to personal data.

The judges have already stepped into private media companies which causes some people to question whether the government has overreached it’s demands.

Have things gone too far?
