NSA Release 2001-2013 Report

I would love to see the original version of the report without the redactions.

https://www.nsa.gov/public_info/decl...ghtBoard.shtml



Quote:
The heavily redacted documents, issued in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by the American Civil Liberties Union, contained quarterly and annual reports to the President’s Intelligence Oversight Board that cover the period from the fourth quarter of 2001 to the second quarter of 2013. It detailed abuses such as NSA employees investigating former spouses and girlfriends; continued monitoring of U.S. citizens’ communications after authorization to do so had expired; and a high school work-study student being given access to the NSA database.
Other revelations were those of goofs—typing errors, information being stored on the wrong servers and incorrect recipients of emails. One analyst mistakenly ordered surveillance of his own personal identifier instead of the selector associated with a foreign intelligence target, according to Bloomberg.
Because the released reports have been heavily censored, it is impossible to tell if any of the admissions by the NSA involved serious wrongdoing. However the details that were published were embarrassing enough that the agency took the opportunity to release the report when it knew the fewest people would be paying attention.
