More Covert Surveillance…

FISA Applications increased in 2011 for electronic sureillance, wiretaps and covert physical searches…the Foreign Intelligence and Surveillance Court, “did not deny any applications in whole, or in part. The FISC made modifications to the proposed orders in 30 applications. Thus, the FISC approved collection activity in a total of 1,674 of the applications”

“part of the increase in FISA surveillance applications “came about directly from” investigations of thwarted domestic and foreign terrorist plots against the United States…as well as in response to materials seized in relation to the raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan and the resulting investigations.”
