To The Editor:
I think I can help the president craft a new regulation that will reduce to approximately zero the prospect of improper snooping by the NSA. I suggest regulatory language along the following lines:
“The NSA shall not collect information related to American citizens except upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized.”
You’re right, I cribbed most of it from the 4th Amendment. But that seems like a good place to start.
