Center for American Progress: Ensuring that FISA is Legal and Effective, November 29, 2006. "The Justice Department's Inspector General announced this week that he will conduct an internal investigation into how the Department used information obtained by the National Security Agency under a warrantless surveillance program authorized by the president shortly after 9/11. Most legal experts consider the program to be in violation of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which requires the government to obtain a warrant from a special court under most circumstances."
