ABSTRACT

NCTC Fact Sheet--Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Section 702   [open pdf - 35KB]

"The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) recently approved minimization procedures that permit the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) to receive certain unevaluated counterterrorism information acquired pursuant to Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) of 1978, as amended. [...] NCTC's handling of unevaluated Section 702-acquired counterterrorism information will be governed by standard minimization procedures adopted by the Attorney General and approved for use by the FISC. [...] These new procedures do not authorize NCTC to engage in targeting or acquisition. Rather, they authorize NCTC to receive certain intelligence information already collected by other agencies targeting non-U.S. persons outside the United States pursuant to Section 702 of FISA. NCTC is not authorized to receive so-called 'upstream' FISA collection."
