National Security, D. O. (n.d.). Statement of Former National Security Officials. Retrieved from

The president has spoken repeatedly and emotionally in recent days about the need for intelligence professionals to have clarity in the law. He has emphasized that it is not fair to ask these men and women to operate in an uncertain legal environment and that in fact, legal uncertainty hampers operational effectiveness and thereby jeopardizes our national security. Yet legal uncertainty is exactly what will result if congress heeds the president's call to enact legislation that replaces the obligation to use the procedures of the foreign intelligence surveillance act with broad language about relying upon the president's constitutional authority. Before fisa was enacted, courts addressed the issue of warrantless surveillance for domestic security purposes but did not clearly resolve the scope of the president's authority regarding foreign intelligence surveillance. Fisa was enacted in order to clarify this murky legal area by setting forth a clear process for electronic surveillance of foreign powers and agents of foreign powers. The executive branch welcomed the clarity and this law has been viewed as an essential national security tool for 28 years.
