Secret Court Approves Continued NSA Spying

On Friday, without much in the way of a public announcement, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) was renewed by the FISA court. The prior order was set to expire at 5pm Friday afternoon, but the ruling by the court approved renewing FISA just prior to the deadline.

There is some good news to this week's happenings. We now know more than ever before exactly how the NSA's telephony metadata program works. Unfortunately, the more we learn, the less it seems we can do.
