A US court says it will allow the National Security Agency to move on with its snooping program for six months. The decision comes despite the recently enacted Freedom Act that ended the phone metadata collection program. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court has argued that the new reform law wouldn’t restrict it from reauthorizing the spying program for six months. The USA Freedom Act was approved by Congress and signed by President Barrack Obama on June 2. Under the law, spy agencies can only obtain the caller’s location, numbers dialed, and length of call, but not the actual conversation.
- Nothing will change. The basic plan to circumvent national laws against spying, as I understand it, is to use another country’s intelligence agencies to do it. Western Illuminist intelligence agencies will spy on one another to side step laws that disallow local spying.
