“On July 22, 1975, the New York Daily News charged that for at least five years the NSA [National Security Agency] routinely eavesdropped on commercial cable traffic to and from the United States. The news shocked many around the country and prompted the House Government Operations Subcommittee on Government Information and Individual Rights to launch an investigation.”
