The U.S. Senate allowed the security services to monitor foreigners

The U.S. Senate on January 18 extended to six years the period of validity of the Federal law on the control of activities of foreign intelligence services Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). This was reported on the website of the Senate.

The law allows during the year without a court order to conduct surveillance of foreign organisations and individuals outside the country if it is in the interests of national security.

American intelligence agencies allowed the collection of data associated with email. If such contacts involved Americans in a number of cases you need to order no later than 72 hours after the start of observation.

In support of this decision was made by 65 legislators, against — 34 abstained — 1. Now the adopted document must be signed by the President of the United States Donald trump.

“Deutsche Welle” notes that the rate of surveillance of American special services for foreign nationals gained fame after revelations of former CIA employee Edward Snowden in June 2013 gave the Washington Post and The Guardian secret materials about the programs of surveillance of US intelligence and the UK on the Internet.

Since the summer of 2013, Snowden lives in Russia where he received asylum.
