CIA Executive Order 12333

Last Wednesday the CIA released information on the updated rules and regulations concerning collection of data and investigation of U.S. citizens. The site can be found at: “Office of Privacy and Civil Liberties”.

The justification for releasing this information –to our knowledge, for the very first time– is as follows:  “All of the CIA’s intelligence activities must be properly authorized, and the collection, retention, or dissemination of information concerning United States persons may only be conducted pursuant to specific procedures approved by the Director of the CIA and the Attorney General.
