Description
 
In June 2013, the British newspaper The Guardian published a series of articles on unauthorized disclosures of classified documents by Edward Snowden, a contractor for the Nat. Security Agency (NSA). They described an NSA program to collect millions of telephone records, including domestic calls. The articles also discussed another NSA program referred to as PRISM. The U.S. government confirmed both programs. Under one, the NSA collects telephone call records or metadata but not the content of phone conversations covering the calls of most Americans on an ongoing basis, subject to renewed approvals by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC or FISA court). This program was approved by the FISC pursuant to Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act. Under the second program, the government collects the content of electronic communications, including phone calls and emails, where the targets are reasonably believed to be non-U.S. persons located outside the U.S. A bipartisan group of Senators asked the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB) to investigate the two NSA programs and to provide an unclassified report so that the public and the Congress can have a long overdue debate about the privacy issues raised. This report contains the results of the PCLOBs 215 program study as well as an analysis and recommendations regarding the FISCs operation. This is a print on demand report.
