Topic - Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court
When The Guardian newspaper disclosed last year that the United States government had obtained an order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court demanding that Verizon Business Network Services produce the phone records of all its customers under Section 215 of the Patriot Act, it opened the door to a year's worth of startling revelations about the National Security Agency's vast, global surveillance apparatus.
It looks as though President Obama and House Speaker John A. Boehner have finally found something they can cooperate on.
Attorneys for a Chicago terrorism suspect are urging a federal appeals court to uphold a trial judge's decision to grant defense lawyers unprecedented access to secret intelligence-court records.

Connecticut U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal says he will continue to seek a robust and independent advocate to argue against the government in the secret federal surveillance court under plans to reform some U.S. surveillance practices ordered by President Barack Obama.
President Barack Obama is still grappling with key decisions on the future of the National Security Agency's phone collection program and the makeup of the secret court that approved the surveillance, lawmakers said Thursday following a 90-minute meeting at the White House.
The secret court that oversees the nation's intelligence activities renewed its approval of the National Security Agency's telephone-records program on Friday, granting the government a new three-month window to collect data on all Americans' phone calls.
Americans must muster the courage to confront Big Brother's spying
The Obama administration is doing all it can, short of dispatching a squad of park rangers to barricade the justices' parking spaces, to prevent the Supreme Court from reviewing the National Security Agency's domestic spying enterprise. The administration's lawyers insist that lower courts can deal with the spy program, since the issue is too new to bother the high court with it. This is an argument too clever by half, since the administration further argues that lower courts have no jurisdiction in the first place.
The Senate's senior lawmaker said Tuesday that it is time to repeal provisions of the Patriot Act that the intelligence community has relied on to collect all Americans' phone records, saying they are not making the country safer.
