Obama Sought NSA Intel On Thousands Of Americans During 2016 Election (Video)

Under the law, our intelligence agencies are not allowed to conduct domestic spying on American citizens. As we all know, they have bypassed this law largely by getting our ally’s intelligence agencies, such as the GCHQ, to do the dirty work for us in a quid pro quo situation. But increasingly the NSA is not even bothering to use this circumvention method and are just straight up spying on American citizens.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at a recent report indicating that in 2016, Obama’s team significantly increased their efforts to search NSA intercepts for information about American citizens; a 27.5% increase from 2015 and a threefold increase since the program began in 2013! And this doesn’t even include the requests the FBI sends to the NSA. Will our surveillance state just keep on growing?

The NSA is not supposed to spy on Americans. It is meant specifically to spy on foreign entities and people.

There are supposed to be protections in place to prevent it from collecting intel on Americans.

But under the Obama administration and especially during the 2016 election, those safeguards appear to have slid precipitously away, as thousands of Americans had their intel collected.

From Circa:

During his final year in office, President Barack Obama’s team significantly expanded efforts to search National Security Agency intercepts for information about Americans, distributing thousands of intelligence reports across government with the unredacted names of U.S. residents during the midst of a divisive 2016 presidential election.

The data, made available this week by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, provides the clearest evidence to date of how information accidentally collected by the NSA overseas about Americans was subsequently searched and disseminated after President Obama loosened privacy protections to make such sharing easier in 2011 in the name of national security.

There was almost a 30% increase in seeking information about Americans from the prior year and they weren’t only looking at the meta data, as is sometimes claimed.

In all, government officials conducted 30,355 searches in 2016 seeking information about Americans in NSA intercept metadata, which include telephone numbers and email addresses. The activity amounted to a 27.5 percent increase over the prior year and more than triple the 9,500 such searches that occurred in 2013, the first year such data was kept.

The government in 2016 also scoured the actual contents of NSA intercepted calls and emails for 5,288 Americans, an increase of 13 percent over the prior year and a massive spike from the 198 names searched in 2013.

That Trump people may have had their names unmasked in this endeavor is now well-known. But it wasn’t only the Trump people, they also collected intel on Congress and their staffers.

The searches ultimately resulted in 3,134 NSA intelligence reports with unredacted U.S. names being distributed across government in 2016, and another 3,354 reports in 2015. About half the time, U.S. identities were unredacted in the original reports while the other half were unmasked after the fact by special request of Obama administration officials.

Among those whose names were unmasked in 2016 or early 2017 were campaign or transition associates of President Donald Trump as well as members of Congress and their staffers, according to sources with direct knowledge.

And those numbers of requests are likely higher, officials said, because they don’t include the number of FBI requests to the NSA.

The official said it is now just easier to make the requests, that you don’t need any great reasons to get the info or have the name unmasked, all you have to do is say it will help your understanding of the foreign intelligence.

This easing of the rules under Obama since 2011 has allowed things like Susan Rice seeking the unmasking of Trump team names and info.

According to Circa, it has also led to the frequent unmasking of members of Congress and their staff, as often as once a month.

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani said it has just gone too far.

“I think it shows that the facade that government gives that these programs are just targeted at foreigners is just that, a façade,” Guliani told Circa. “The reality is we have an invasive surveillance program and the data we have shows the impact on Americans is quite substantial.”

The breadth of this is scary, particularly with the possible political use to which it can be put.

This is far beyond what was originally allowed and the safeguards need to be reinstated.
