Abstract

Last week the Senate Intelligence Committee voted to declassify parts of its controversial report into the CIA’s practices in the aftermath of 9/11. Allison Stanger warns against interpreting this and the likely termination of the collection of telephone meta-data as the beginning of the end of the U.S. surveillance state. She argues that most of the emergency measures that quickly became business as usual during the Bush Administration are still on the books, and that these will still allow the government to track the communications of Americans abroad, as well as their Internet traffic that is not based in the U.S.
