Excerpt
The legislation strikes a delicate balance between protection of national security and the protection of the human liberties and rights of the american 'people. It would substitute carefully prescribed accountability and oversight for the arbitrariness of the past. S. 1566 requires that all foreigp intelligence electronic surveillance in the united states be subject to a judicial warrant requirement based on probable cause. The courts, not the executive; ultimately rule on whether the surveillance should occur. Only foreign powers or agents of a foreign power can be the subjects of a.wiretap. These statutory provisions are the very heart of the legislation. They relegate to the past the protracted wiretapping abuses aimed at joseph kraft, martin luther king, jr., and morton halperin. They prevent the national secunty agency from randomly wiretapping american citizens whose napes just happen to be on a watch list of civil rights and antiwar activists. The bill also mandates that before a wiretap can occur, a named executive branch official-such as the secretary of defense-must certify in writing, under oath, that such a wiretap is necessary in order to obtain foreip-intelligence information. The bill provides civil and criminal sanctions to those who violate its provisions.
