Executive Order 12333 and Foreign Intelligence Collection - Podcast

International & National Security Law Practice Group Podcast
Matthew G. Olsen, David R. Shedd, Matthew R.A. Heiman February 29, 2016

In 1981, President Reagan signed Executive Order 12333. It assigned foreign intelligence collection responsibilities to the agencies that make up the Intelligence Community. Among those responsibilities is electronic surveillance. Following the Edward Snowden disclosures, President Obama placed additional restrictions on the collection and use of certain foreign intelligence, and privacy advocates have argued that additional scrutiny must be applied to electronic surveillance related to Executive Order 12333. Our experts discussed how such collection works, how the intelligence is used, and how this activity supports national security.
