A new report claims that the National Security Agency’s database system allows analysts to scour individuals’ emails, chats and Internet browsing histories at will. Privacy4Patriots calls on lawmakers to halt general data collection without probable cause of wrongdoing.

According to Fox News and other media outlets, a new report from The Guardian based on leaked documents is claiming that the National Security Agency (NSA) is operating a massive database system allowing analysts to scour individuals’ emails, chats and Internet browsing histories at will.

Previously it had been revealed that the NSA was recording Americans’ phone calls and storing their emails for later scrutiny. The NSA acknowledges the existence of the program – called XKeyscore – but said access is limited and suggested it was mainly aimed at foreign intelligence targets.

The report claims that the program covers “nearly everything a typical user does on the Internet,” including emails and websites visited. It also reportedly allows analysts to intercept Internet activity in “real time,” and provides “the technological capability, if not the legal authority” to go after Americans without a warrant as long as an analyst knows information like an email or IP address.

Privacy4Patriots hopes that more lawmakers will join Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) in his efforts to mount a Supreme Court challenge to the federal government’s surveillance of American citizens. He argues that the Fourth Amendment prevents unreasonable search and seizure and is interested in getting 10 million Americans to speak up about not wanting their phone records being looked at.
