EPIC – Government Releases Secret Court Order Authorizing NSA Telephone Surveillance

“The Director of National Intelligence has published the “Primary Order” from the FISA Court which describes the scope of the NSA’s data analysis activities for telephone call records. The order details the procedures the NSA is expected to follow when reviewing data, but is heavily redacted. The order does not include a legal analysis of the surveillance laws being applied. The government also released past reports on the NSA’s domestic surveillance program. For more information, see In re EPIC – NSA Telephone Records Surveillance and EPIC: NSA Petition.”
