Feinstein's Fake Fix. EFF asks that you act immediately.Submitted by dice on Fri, 11/08/2013 - 22:26
The FISA Improvements Act of 2013 seeks to extend NSA surveillance.
The FISA Improvements Act of 2013 is a new bill promoted by Senator Dianne Feinstein, Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, designed to bolster some of the worst NSA surveillance programs and grant new authority to the NSA to engage in surveillance.
Senator Feinstein is touting this proposal as a way to address the problems with uncontrolled NSA spying, but don’t be fooled: it’s a fake fix.
The Fake Fix is designed to:
-Authorize the NSA’s practice of collecting phone records of hundreds of millions of innocent Americans.
-Authorize the NSA to engage in bulk collection of Internet communication records—an extremely invasive program the government tried in the past, but shut down because it was useless.
This bill isn’t designed to rein in the NSA spying programs.
Please take a moment and contact your overlords.
It doesn't get any easier than this.
