The New York Times is reporting President Obama and the NSA are moving forward with a secret plan to expand the sharing of innocent Americans’ information collected under NSA mass surveillance programs – without input from the public or Congress.
If the administration gets its way, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies would have access to raw NSA data – they’d be able to search through unfiltered, un-redacted information about millions of ordinary Americans, without probable cause.
And they’d be able to use that data against people for regular criminal investigations, even without getting a warrant.
The NSA mass surveillance programs already infringe too much on our 4th Amendment rights – this expansion would be a move in EXACTLY the wrong direction.
Tell President Obama: Protect Americans’ privacy. Stop the secret plan to share NSA data with law enforcement!
