Do you feel like someone is spying on you? Your hunch might be correct. An article by Zack Whittaker in the ZDnet web site says, “The agency collected a staggering 534 million domestic phone records last year, up threefold on the year earlier.”
The article also states, “According to the figures [released on Friday], 7,512 Americans had their calls and messages searched without a warrant, up by 42 percent on the year prior” and “… it also sweeps up large amounts of data on Americans, who are constitutionally protected from warrantless surveillance.”
Yes, the U.S. Constitution says that the government cannot spy on its own citizens without a warrant and yet at least one government agency admits it is doing more and more of exactly that.
