Blogathon #12: Washington Post: New Documents reveal parameter of NSA's Secret Surveillance Program

Hi Cyber Zombies,
The next article comes the Washington Post. They found new documents reveal the parameter of NSA's Surveillance program
Congress authorized the collection program amid a great debate about the degree to which the government was expanding its surveillance authority without sufficient protection for Americans’ privacy.
Authorized by Section 702 of the amended Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the program did away with the traditional individual warrant for each foreign suspect whose communications would be collected in the United States. In its place, the FISA court, which oversees domestic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes and whose proceedings are secret, would certify the government’s procedures to target people overseas and ensure citizens’ privacy.
