EFF: Timeline of NSA Domestic Spying

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has created an extensive Timeline of NSA Domestic Spying that refers to legislation, reports, hearings, events, and leaked documents. It details laws and earlier programs (e.g. Total Information Awareness) that predate the most recent revelations. (It begins in 1791!) It has links to documents and hearings that make it a virtual bibliography and more than a simple list of events. EFF notes that:

All of the evidence found in this timeline can also be found in the Summary of Evidence we submitted to the court in Jewel v. National Security Agency (NSA). It is intended to recall all the credible accounts and information of the NSA’s domestic spying program found in the media, congressional testimony, books, and court actions. The timeline also includes documents leaked by the Guardian in June 2013 that confirmed the domestic spying by the NSA.
