There is now Proof the NSA Overindulges in Data Collection
"National security officials are
continually reassuring Americans that their communications aren’t
getting caught in massive dragnets, and that when it does happen, the
communications are handled responsibly. But recently-released opinions
from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC)—the seven-judge
panel charged with oversight of National Security Agency (NSA) spying
programs—show just the opposite is true.
The heavily redacted documents,
released on June 13 by the Department of Justice in response to a
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the Electronic Frontier
Foundation (EFF), show troubling abuses of surveillance powers granted
under Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act."
