On Christmas Eve the National Security Agency (NSA) released forty-eight PDF documents on their website that proves that they illegally spied on Americans. These documents were heavily redacted prior to release yet they still reveal the NSA’s wrongdoing. Four of the PDF documents are annual reports and the other forty-four are quarterly reports to the President’s Intelligence Oversight Board (IOB). The forty-four quarterly reports were submitted from the fourth quarter of 2001 to the second quarter of 2013 and the four annual reports are consolidations of the relevant quarterly reports. The release of these documents was a response to an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Freedom of Information Act request which was a long-fought legal battle. I have included a link to download all 48 of the documents in one compressed (zipped) file, alternatively I have also included links to view each document individually. I also recommend that you visit the NSA’s site to see their official statement to the public.
Thank you for taking the time to read this article! As always keep the faith!
