    From the article:
    The Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) has signed off on new rules to let the National Security Agency (NSA) share globally intercepted personal information with the country’s other 16 intelligence agencies, before it applies privacy protection to or minimizes the raw data.

    The new rules mean that the FBI, the CIA, the DEA, and intelligence agencies of the US military’s branches and more, will be able to search through raw signals intelligence (SIGINT): intercepted signals that include all manner of people’s communications, be it via satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, as well as messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.


    From Catch-22:

    Yossarian: I'm not going on another bombing mission. Those guys [the Germans] are trying to kill me.

    Clevinger: They're trying to kill everyone.

    Yossarian: And what difference does that make?



    President Trump: Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
    How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

    White House Counsel: Mr. President, Obama was tapping everybody's phone.

    President Trump: And what difference does that make?


    White House Counsel: Mr. President, do you realize that you are now...

    wire-tapping yourself?



    12333 was signed by President Reagan in 1981 and still is in effect.

    From the article:

    Policies like USSID 18 and other accompanying Executive Order guidelines such as the "Special Procedures Governing Communications Metadata Analysis" allow for extensive use of US person information and data without a probable cause warrant.
