    FISA Court Approves Continued U.S. Phone Surveillance

    WASHINGTON — A secret U.S. intelligence court renewed an order Friday to continue forcing Verizon Communications to turn over hundreds of millions of telephone records to the government each day in its search for foreign terror or espionage suspects.The order by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court has been in place for years but must be renewed every three months. It was exposed in June after former National Security Agency systems analyst Edward Snowden leaked details of two top secret U.S. surveillance programs that critics say violate privacy rights.
    The order was set to expire Friday, and its renewal shows that the Obama administration and the court of 11 federal judges stand behind its legality.

    It seems this administration and the government is standing behind the FISA and continuing this controversial (illegal) program. Its a damn shame.

    We'll remember that Democrats took this program to stratospheric levels. They're making Bush look like a choir boy.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Bush was doing this too. They just didn't tell you about it. Obama didn't want to tell you either, he just got caught.

    I'm still wondering how a "secret court" can ever really be justice.

    What's the Supreme Court's view on this?
