U.S. Discloses 2014 Warrantless Surveillance Program Court Documents

In response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by the New York Times, the Obama administration on Monday declassified a set of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court documents from 2014. They related to the government’s annual request for court “certifications” approving its warrantless surveillance activities under the FISA Amendments Act. While heavily redacted, the newly disclosed documents show that the government made several changes to the program in the 2014 cycle, all of which were approved by Judge Thomas Hogan on Aug. 26, 2014.
