#FISA : Civil Liberties are abused by approval or denial of `Surveillance Warrants ‘ against `Foreign Enemies ‘ living in US ‘

#AceSecurityNews says that RT reported this week about the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (also known as the FISA Court) was established in 1978 as a gatekeeper that would approve or deny surveillance warrants against suspect foreign enemies living inside the United States.

Since that date, the court has denied 11 of the nearly 34,000 surveillance requests by the government.

While judges on the court have said that they force the government to make changes to approximately one-quarter of those requests, the .03 percent decline rate has been startling to civil liberties advocates.
