NSA admits listening to U.S. phone calls without warrants


news.cnet.com

The National Security Agency has acknowledged in a new classified briefing that it does not need court authorization to listen to domestic phone calls.
Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat, disclosed this week that during a secret briefing to members of Congress, he was told that the contents of a phone call could be accessed "simply based on an analyst deciding that."

If the NSA wants "to listen to the phone," an analyst's decision is sufficient, without any other legal authorization required, Nadler said he learned. "I was rather startled," said Nadler, an attorney and congressman who serves on the House Judiciary committee.

[...]

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the head of the Senate Intelligence committee, separately acknowledged this week that the agency's analysts have the ability to access the "content of a call."

So they ARE listening. I think we all suspected this. It's funny that the day before the classified briefing for Congress, during an open hearing, the NSA Chief kept saying that they couldn't do any of that without a warrant.

But now a congressman is saying that in the classified hearing the very next day, they were told otherwise?

Where does the madness stop?
