It seems both prudent and logical to monitor communications which you might find suspect of presenting a threat to national security.
The question should be, who they think is a threat and why?
‘‘(5) the term ‘domestic terrorism’ means activities that—
‘‘(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;
‘‘(B) appear to be intended—
‘‘(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
‘‘(ii) to influence the policy of a government by
intimidation or coercion; or
‘‘(iii) to affect the conduct of a government by
mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and
‘‘(C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction
of the United States.’’.

If suspected of terrorism activities, they can pull up in unmarked vans, kidnap you, take you to a remote location, they do not have to tell your family, interrogate you for "as long as it takes" (could be years if they really don't like you), seize everything you own.
