Media conference grant hackett: Why the FBI wants to track a presidential candidate is the story behind the hack of the Democratic National Committee computer system, by James Risen, September 25, 2013

The FBI’s use of surveillance technology to track presidential candidates seems unprecedented, according to documents leaked from the inte바카라사이트lligence agency’s office in Langley, Virginia, last week. One of the documents, titled the FISA Amendments Act of 2008, is a detailed overview of더킹카지노 U.S. government surveillance programs in its search for terrorists. The FBI’s ability to collect foreign intelligence on American citizens — including U.S. military personnel — is even more extensive, with Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act making use of more information than ever before available for this purpose. The FISA Amendments Act provides for the acquisition of foreign communications for national security purposes, but it permits the government to request “specifically targeted” data on individua더킹카지노ls only “to protect Americans or foreign nationals from criminal or terrorist activity.” “The act is not, I think, the best-written and most effective legislation that we’ve had in terms of addressing foreign intelligence and counterterrorism goals, but it has been passed,” David Drummond, a law professor at the University of Maryland and a former FBI executive, told me last week.

The ACLU of Virginia (which represents the Virginia Tech students) also wants to know what the Department of Justice (DOJ) plans to do with the information collected by Section 702, so that it can get a clearer picture of what the government plans to do with the information it does find in the future.

Update:

The ACLU has released a report called “FISA Amendments Act and the Surveillance of American Electors: An Unwarranted Stakeholder Inquiry,” and it details how the surveillance program operates.

UPDATE #2: According to a post by The Atlantic’s Ben Wizner, the document obtained from NSA is called the “Report to the Senate” dated May 18, 2007.

Update #3: EFF and the ACLU are filing an amicus curiae in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of seven students on a federal court panel, which has been deciding their case. In the letter, EFF points out the need for the court to make public the full breadth of the surveillance programs that are under the public record.
