WASHINGTON, may 3. /Offset. TASS Boris Makarov/. The national security Agency (NSA) of the USA in 2016 have traced not less than 151 million phone calls in spite of structure measures to limit surveillance of citizens. The relevant data are given in a statement on Tuesday the report of the office of the Director of national intelligence.
It alone emphasizes that the question in this case is not about an equally large number came under the surveillance, as it counts every single call.
It is noted that the NSA had received from the Court for supervision over the activities of foreign intelligence services official permission to monitor suspected terrorist activities only in 42 cases.
Last week the NSA announced that it intends to terminate one of the programs of surveillance in the framework of the Law on auditions in the interests of foreign intelligence (FISA). As it is said, the so-called section 702 of FISA, which will expire at the end of this year, allows “the intelligence community to carry out the observation of a single foreign persons outside the U.S. to obtain intelligence, including those used to combat international terrorism and to counter cyber threats”.
