The the Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies has released its report and recommendations on changes to the National Security Agency (NSA). The report says that the NSA’s status quo “creates potential risks to public trust, personal privacy, and civil liberty.”
- Liberty And Security In A Changing World, Report and Recommendations of The President’s Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies (12 December 2013).
On August 27, 2013, the President announced the creation of the Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies. The immediate backdrop for our work was a series of disclosures of classified information involving foreign intelligence collection by the National Security Agency. The disclosures revealed intercepted collections that occurred inside and outside of the United States and that included the communications of United States persons and legal permanent residents, as well as non-United States persons located outside the United States. Although these disclosures and the responses and concerns of many people in the United States and abroad have informed this Report, we have focused more broadly on the creation of sturdy foundations for the future, safeguarding (as our title suggests) liberty and security in a rapidly changing world.
