Tech Firms Disclose More Info about U.S. Snooping

Posted: Updated:

Five major technology companies have released previously confidential information that confirms the U.S. government has been snooping on the digital lives of thousands of people in the name of national security.
 
The disclosures made Monday cover secret court orders demanding the emails and other online activities of people using the services of Google Inc., Yahoo Inc., Facebook Inc., Microsoft Corp. and LinkedIn Corp. 
 
It's the first time that the companies have been able to disclose the volume of U.S. government orders approved by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that monitors spying programs set up to sniff out potential terrorist plots.
 
The companies still aren't being allowed to provide many details. They are only disclosing the number of users affected by the FISA orders in broad ranges. (AP)
