NSA Phone-Records Spying Said to Violate Rules for Years
The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a privacy-rights group in San Francisco, sued the NSA to obtain the documents that had been issued by a secret intelligence court.
“It’s pretty damning,” said Trevor Timm, a digital rights analyst with EFF. “This shows a larger pattern that a lot of times the NSA doesn’t alert the court to serious privacy violations, whether they are intentional or unintentional, for years down the road.”
