PRISM began in 2007 in the wake of the passage of the Protect America
Act under the Bush Administration. The program is operated under the
supervision of the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA
Court, or FISC) pursuant to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act
(FISA). Its existence was leaked six years later by NSA contractor
Edward Snowden, who warned that the extent of mass data collection
was far greater than the public knew and included what he
characterized as "dangerous" and "criminal" activities. The
disclosures were published by The Guardian and The Washington Post on
June 6, 2013.

the Constitution, you'll be quite surprised

left to speak up for you.
