The NSA’s ICREACH program

The Intercept reports on one NSA program that allows domestic law enforcements agencies–including the FBI and DEA–to search through its trove of metadata for “foreign intelligence.” As the article notes, this includes “incidental” data on U.S. citizens. As I mentioned earlier this week, although the scale of this dragnet is unprecedented, the actual procedure of information sharing is nothing new – and dates back to the SHAMROCK and MINERVA operations throughout the Cold War.
