The NSA Admits
--- --- ------

Ready?

Let's start out with what the NSA will admit. (extra capitalization is mine)


* Court Says U.S. Spy Agency Can Tap Overseas Messages
* By David Burnham, The New York Times, 1982
*
* Washington, Nov 6 --- A Federal appeals court has ruled that the National
* Security Agency may lawfully intercept messages between United States
* citizens and people overseas, even if there is no cause to believe they
* Americans are foreign agents, and then provide summaries of these messages
* to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
*
* Because the National Security Agency is among the largest and most
* secretive intelligence agencies and because MILLIONS of electronic messages
* enter and leave the United States each day, lawyers familiar with the
* intelligence agency consider the decision to mark a significant increase in
* the legal authority of the government to keep track of its citizens.
*
* The mission of the NSA is to eavesdrop on electronic messages of foreign
* governments and protect the electronic communications of the United States.
* To accomplish these goals, the agency has SEVERAL THOUSAND listening posts
* around the world and a HUGE bank of computers in its heavily guarded head-
* quarters at Fort George Meade, MD, near Washington.
*
* A Special Senate Intelligence Committee report in 1975 found that the
* computer system functioned like a "GIANT VACUUM CLEANER" capable of
* sweeping in ALL ELECTRONIC MESSAGES to and from the United States.

* Mr. Jabara is a lawyer who for many years has represented Arab-American
* citizens and alien reside
