Center for Democracy & Technology Report on U.S. National Security Agency Activities

The Center for Democracy & Technology (CDT), a Washington, DC-based, Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3) non-profit organization — with a mission  to promote an open, innovative, and free Internet — released in October of last year a 5-page report on U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) activities:

Bulk Data Collection and Electronic Surveillance by the United States National Security Agency

The CDT makes a number of recommendations in the report, including:

  • Disclose annually the number of surveillance requests the U.S. government makes…
  • The U.S. Congress should bar the NSA from circumventing U.S. law by obtaining from other intelligence agencies information U.S. law bars it from collecting itself.
