Former Judge Admits Flaws With Secret FISA Court
US Politics & Gov't  (tags: James Robertson, NSA, surveillance, FISA, court, American Civil Liberties Union, metadata, flawed system )

- 2169 days ago -
James Robertson said the system is flawed because of its failure to allow legal adversaries to question the government's actions. Much of the NSA's surveillance is overseen by the FISA court, which meets in secret and renders rulings that are classified.

US Politics & Gov't  (tags: Chief Justice John Roberts, Supreme Court, FISA, Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, spying, NSA )

He has exclusive, unaccountable, lifetime power to shape the surveillance state. All 11 judges -- 10 Republicans and 1 Democrat -- were appointed by Roberts. Are you ok with that the American citizens?

Why Doesn't the 9/11 Commission Know About Mukasey's 9/11 Story?
US Politics & Gov't  (tags: 9/11, FISA, Mukasey )

- 4091 days ago -
Did the attorney general just reveal a critical, previously unknown fact about the 9/11 attack, or did he lie about it to demand new spying powers?
The Intelligence Cover-Up
US Politics & Gov't  (tags: FISA, wiretapping )

- 4107 days ago -
The "cumbersome process" is really a court that acts swiftly and has refused only a half-dozen of more than 21,000 wiretap requests in its nearly 30 years of existence.
Dear Media: Please Stop Repeating This Lie
US Politics & Gov't  (tags: FISA, wiretapping, media lies )

the NSA approached Qwest more than six months before the Sept. 11, 2001...The U.S. National Security Agency asked AT&T Inc. to help it set up a domestic call monitoring site seven months before the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks
The Reyes Doctrine: Speak Loudly and Cower Like a Whipped Cur
US Politics & Gov't  (tags: FISA, Telecom immunity, Democrats for Bush )

- 4157 days ago -
Note, the guy doesn't go far enough about how bad this is...ALL internet is routed where the net is least busy, so a person in the US emailing another US person can have their email go outside our borders. Therefore it's everyone at risk.
U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken Rules Parts of Patriot Act Unconstitutional
US Politics & Gov't  (tags: Patriot Act, FISA, Oregon, Federal Judge Ann Aiken )

National Intelligence Director Mike McConnell: Give Me More Power to Eavesdrop
US Politics & Gov't  (tags: FISA, electronic surveillance, Protect America Act, Mike McConnell, Nation Intelligence Director, US government, Congress )

Democratic Senators Scrambling to Re-Write FISA Law
US Politics & Gov't  (tags: FISA, Democrats, Senate, Democratic Senators, FISA bill, law )
