Senate NSA reform gives agency even more spying powers

Nov 1, 2013
The Senate Intelligence Committee approved a bill called the FISA Improvement Act on Thursday. Committee chair Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) called the reforms "prudent, responsible and meaningful," but critics say the bill actually gives the National Security Agency more legal protections to continue its bulk data collection. Previously, the NSA used its own interpretation of Section 215 of the Patriot Act to spy on American citizens, and the FISA Improvement Act would codify that program into law. There is a separate, competing bill introduced earlier this week that would end the NSA's ability to conduct bulk collection of phone records.

"It was the poverty caused by the bad influence of the
 English Bankers on the Parliament which has caused in the colonies hatred of the English and...the Revolutionary War."
– Benjamin Franklin

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined."
