NSA scandal: US surveillance to continue despite expiring legislation

             Actually, US MEPs have to renew an important section of a US law before the end of this year to allow extensive surveillance programs to continue. If that does not work out, the US government still wants to continue.
            

        

        The US government is confident that the controversial surveillance based on Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) can continue for the time being, even though the legal basis for the year ends. As the New York Times reports, the US Intelligence Directorate relies on an interpretation of the legal text. Thus, full surveillance could continue until the end of April 2018 if the US Congress does not agree on the extension that has been negotiated for months. However, it is still set on the fact that this will work despite the controversial current negotiations for the US budget.

        NSA scandal

The NSA, British GCHQ and other Western intelligence agencies make extensive use of international communications, spy on companies and government agencies, and secretly oblige service providers to cooperate. Details have been revealed by Edward Snowden.

The FISA section 702, which came under the spotlight in the wake of the NSA scandal, allows US authorities to monitor non-US persons living outside the United States worldwide without any specific suspicion. The spies only need a permit from the purpose-built, secretive FISC court, where no-one could argue against the motions. Section 702 served as the legal legitimacy of the Prism monitoring program – which provided US intelligence with data from US Internet services – and upstream – requiring data from the Internet backbone operator.
With the announcement that the programs under Section 702 would not be shut down immediately on January 1, 2018, should the text of the law not be renewed, the US government is taking pressure from MEPs. This would allow them to discuss the various proposals in more detail next year, because there is no consensus at the moment. While some MPs want to commit the text unchanged and without time limit, others argue for more changes that would lead to more privacy for Americans. Also, there is still no consensus on what agents must meet in the future to search the immense databases to be allowed.
Warning before the end of surveillance If, ​​however, the surveillance under section 702 is in fact stopped completely, the intelligence agencies will use a cumbersome means to continue at least parts of the comprehensive surveillance. The list of 100,000 target individuals would then have to be systematically reviewed in order to obtain monitoring orders for those who should not be lost sight of, the New York Times explains the plans. After extensive preparatory work, individual monitoring orders could then be obtained from the secret court FISC for these persons. But because higher requirements have to be fulfilled and the whole thing would be a lot of work, the surveillance of most target persons would then end.
