New NSA rules allow agency to share data without privacy protections or terrorism links #vmvwiki ps
A consistent argument the NSA and its defenders have offered for the agency's behavior since 9/11 is that its mass surveillance and warrantless wiretapping programs are required to fight terrorism. One of the persistent fears of privacy advocates has been that these programs will be expanded into domains with absolutely no relation to terrorism. Now, the Obama administration has drafted rules that will allow the FBI and other agencies full access to the raw data that the NSA collects without any safeguards or privacy protections.
