Administration Seeks Warrantless Domestic Surveillance Authority
Last week, the Administration released a draft bill that would amend the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to permit large-scale warrantless surveillance of Americans. Described as a "modernization" effort, the legislation would result in a huge step backwards in efforts to re-establish reasonable checks and balances on government spying. The dense and complicated draft was over a year in preparation. CDT will be releasing an analysis of the bill by the end of this week.
