DOJ domestic phone, email, Internet surveillance of Americans skyrocket under Obama
A new report from the American Civil Liberties Union shows a dramatic increase in the U.S. Department of Justice’s electronic surveillance of Americans under the Obama administration.

Documents obtained by the ACLU through a Freedom of Information Act request revealed that under President Obama

between 2009 and 2011, warrantless electronic surveillance requests by the Justice Department to spy on phone communications increased 60 percent from 23,535 to 37,616.

The number of people whose phone calls were subject to such surveillance during that same time period tripled.

Phone numbers called and received, emails sent and received, and other Internet communications were all monitored by the federal government via “pen register” and “trap and trace devices” — systems that measure the data, not the content, about the communication.

Such techniques are different from wiretaps, which monitor the content of communications.

More people were subjected to federal government pen register and trap and trace surveillance of their phones in the past two years than in the previous decade.

DOJ surveillance of Internet communications, while rarer, increased 361 percent between 2009 and 2011.
