“The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 is a United States federal law which establishes procedures for the physical and electronic surveillance and collection of “foreign intelligence information” between “foreign powers” and “agents of foreign powers” suspected of espionage or terrorism.”
Like any tool, when used properly, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act can be used to keep Americans safe. When used incorrectly, with malice and ill intent, the very same tool can transform from one of safety to one of harm. Much like how a gun in the hands of a man is a good or bad thing depending on the man, the public usefulness of spying and espionage depends on those who are engaging in the act. This being the world that it is, with the power wielded from FISA, do you think it is always used justly? Learn more about how the corrupt who lead us use FISA to rob American citizens of their well deserved freedom and liberties.
