NSA can search US Emails through a backdoor
August 10 , 2013
NSA can go through Americans' emails without needing a warrant by using a secret "backdoor", which happens to be legal.
This information comes from Edward Snowden and has been confirmed by NSA critic Ron Wyden.
"A gap in the law that I call the 'backdoor searches loophole' allows the government to potentially go through these communications and conduct warrantless searches for the phone calls or emails of law-abiding Americans," Wyden said.
According to Snowden, the process requires an oversight but its not clear that this oversight has yet been implemented.
