During his final year in office, President Barack Obama's team significantly expanded efforts to search National Security Agency intercepts for information about Americans, distributing thousands of intelligence reports across government with the unredacted names of U.S. residents during the midst of a divisive 2016 presidential election.
The data, made available this week by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, provides the clearest evidence to date of how information accidentally collected by the NSA overseas about Americans was subsequently searched and disseminated after President Obama loosened privacy protections to make such sharing easier in 2011 in the name of national security. A court affirmed his order.
The revelations are particularly sensitive since the NSA is legally forbidden from directly spying on Americans and its authority to conduct warrantless searches on foreigners is up for renewal in Congress later this year. And it comes as lawmakers investigate President Trump's own claims his privacy was violated by his predecessor during the 2016 election.
You can read the rest @
(1) If the court which "affirmed his order" is the FISA Court, keep in mind it has NEVER denied any requests made to it. It's a rubber stamp whose "oversight" is meaningless.
(2) This information was not "accidentally collected". The NSA knows who is on both ends of each line it spies upon, and it intentionally collects info on everyone involved.
(3) Obama ad-Dajjal is a liar and a thug. He should be in jail, not hobnobbing with the rich and famous. Why are his followers protecting this evil person?
