National Security, D. O. (n.d.). Facts V. Fiction : The Justice Department's New Re-Write of Fisa. Retrieved from

Prepared by Lisa Graves, Deputy Director, Center for National Security Studies (4-18-07) For further information, contact Lisa Graves or Kate Martin, Director of CNSS, at 721-5650 The Justice Department's Fact Sheet about its 2007 FISA bill omits the most important effect of its proposed changes: it would permit the government to acquire millions of Americans?international phone calls and e-mails without a warrant, so long as it vacuumed up the contents of these communications en masse, rather than targeting for acquisition the calls of a particular individual in the United States. And it would permit the government to then sort and analyze all those communications and listen to and distribute whichever ones it chose, in secret, with no warrant or meaningful oversight whatsoever. This would be a dramatic and drastic change to current law. Under the guise of tech neutrality, the proposal would neutralize important protections in current law and authorize the warrantless surveillance of virtually all communications by Americans with anyone, including other Americans, located overseas.
