How Many Americans are Swept up in NSA’s Foreign Intelligence Surveillance?

The Brennan Center for Justice, joined by more than 30 other privacy and civil liberties organizations, urged Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper to determine and disclose how many Americans are swept up in NSA surveillance under a law that authorizes the agency to target foreigners overseas. Coming on the heels of the DNI’s release of a “Principles of Intelligence Transparency Implementation Plan” earlier this week, the letter challenges the Intelligence Community to put action behind its words. “Americans deserve to know the truth about so-called ‘foreign intelligence’ surveillance,” said Elizabeth Goitein, co-director of the Brennan Center’s Liberty and National Security Program.
