A New York Times article on December 16, 2005, “reported that the super-secret National Security Agency had intercepted telephone calls and e-mails traveling into and out of the United States, so long as one of the parties to the communication was suspected of being a member of al Qaeda. Surveillance took place without a FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act] warrant. President Bush confirmed the existence of the program the next day.”
