Dragnet NSA Spying Survives

Stopping dragnet Internet surveillance under FISA Section 702

In 2016 we also will move to keep the pressure on government Internet surveillance under Section 702 of FISA. While the 2015 congressional policy debate centered on telephone surveillance under Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act, Internet surveillance is no less troubling and equally (if not even more) susceptible to politicization and abuse.

Section 702 is currently set to expire at the end of 2017, making the next two years a crucial period for establishing some long overdue transparency into how the government both interprets the law, and uses the technologies implementing it. Greater transparency—for instance, through proposed reforms to restore order and common sense to the broken and bloated classification system—can help set the terms of debate in Congress and in the public.

Dragging Executive Order 12333 into the daylight

In July 2014, just a month after the intelligence agencies narrowly averted congressional reform targeting section 702, a former State Department employee revealed that U.S. intelligence agencies also rely on Executive Order 12333 to collect data on, from, and about Americans. EFF was drawing attention to E.O. 12333 even earlier, but it’s rarely discussed in Washington today as the subject of privacy-expanding surveillance reform.
