Blogathon #15: EFF In Depth Review: New NSA Documents

Hi Cyber Zombies,

There is an in depth article on how the NSA spied on American without a search warrant. The article was posted today by Kurt Opsahl.

The Guardian published a new batch of secret leaked FISA court and NSA documents yesterday, which detail the particulars of how government has been accessing Americans’ emails without a warrant, in violation of the Constitution. The documents lay bare fundamental problems with the ineffectual attempts to place meaningful limitations on the NSA’s massive surveillance program. 
Essentially, the new documents, dated July 2009 and approved in August 2010, detail how the NSA deals with the huge streams of information it receives during the collection program that gathers the content of email and telephone calls, allowing it to keep vast quantities of content it could never get with a warrant.  They may not be the current procedures - more on that in another blog post shortly.
