by Adam Dick, Ron Paul Institute:
Why did the National Security Agency (NSA) dispatch hundreds of agents to the US Congress to lobby for the USA FREEDOM Act if the legislation would, as many of the bill’s advocates in the Congress assert, greatly restrain the US government’s mass surveillance program? Judge Andrew Napolitano, the senior judicial analyst at Fox News, answers in a new video commentary that the NSA lobbied for the USA FREEDOM Act because the bill actually provides absolutely no “savings of civil liberties” and does not in any way change the “volume or nature” of the information the US government obtains via mass surveillance.
Napolitano, a Ron Paul Institute Advisory Board member, concludes that under the USA FREEDOM Act there is only “a very slight difference in the manner” by which information is acquired in mass surveillance in comparison to how it has been acquired under the PATRIOT Act.
