The Intelligence Community will release data each year regarding specific FISA orders and letters.

Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper said on Friday that each year, the Intelligence Community (IC) will release figures showing the total number of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court orders and national security letters issued during the prior twelve-month period, and the number of targets affected by those orders. These court orders and letters are tools authorized by the Patriot Act that allow government agencies to pursue individuals suspected of terrorism and espionage.

Interesting to see some more follow through on transparency. I'm kind of on the fences about all this and waiting for the other shoe to drop or be thrown since this almost feels like Bush giving a speech again.

unfortunately what they have done is fueled peoples skepticism for generations to come. It could turn the whole nation into cynics which is actually not too bad imo

finally some of this sickening north korean like patriotism could start to die out and people might start to think for themselves ..

Trusting any form of government is never a good idea. And patriotism is the farthest thing from North Korea. Most of the those people live in fear of the government and wouldn't dare cross it.

Being a patriot doesn't mean you blindly follow the government. patriots stand for the principles that the nation was founded on
