Three Years After Snowden, Bipartisan Coalition Demands Congress End Warrantless Spying

Lauren McCauley, staff writer

Three years ago on Monday, the world was shattered by news that the United States was conducting sweeping, warrantless surveillance of people, heads of state, and organizations across the globe.

To mark the anniversary of those revelations, brought forth by a then-unknown contractor working for the National Security Administration (NSA), a coalition of public interest groups have launched a new campaign fighting for the expiration of the law that the government claims authorizes its mass spying.

Why doesn't this article call it " illegal " spying instead of warrantless ? Warrantless makes it sound like maybe they just forgot something in the process . Illegal and Unconstitutional spying on U.S. Citiizens and covered up by the respective House and Senate committees . Let's not parse words here .
Nixon got impeached with a heck of a lot less .

I agree totally to what you have said and wonder why?:  According to the article

"That law is scheduled to sunset on December 31, 2017." Another eighteen months
to continue freely doing what was a crime?
And what about Snowden? Taking his passport, leaving him stranded in Russian and then saying he fled to Russia. No one in his right mind would return and end up in prison. The only damage done to the US with his revelations is giving us a chance to be free at least of one more liberty lost.

Why then is Snowden having to live in Russia? Why haven't we brought him home as a hero?

"Yes, Mr. Jones, the car HAS rolled onto your foot, but don't worry, we'll roll it off by December 2017!"
