Senator Rand Paul says the he will not support reauthorizing the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) without greater protection for our citizens.
Since the intention of FISA is to spy on foreigners, we don’t require that the government obey the Constitution. The Fourth Amendment protections of privacy are not extended to foreigners.
Congress agreed to a less-than-constitutional standard as long as the targets were foreigners in foreign lands. Even many privacy advocates can accept this lower standard for foreign intelligence. But few, if any, privacy advocates believe that information vacuumed up without constitutional protections should be used against Americans accused of domestic wrongdoing.
Unfortunately, that’s what we believe is happening now. In the vast dragnet of data files collected on foreigners under Section 702 of FISA, millions of bits of information are also collected on Americans. We don’t know the exact amount because our overlords in the intelligence community won’t tell us.
