The National Security Agency (NSA) and the Bill Of Rights


            The relevance of the National Security Agency's actions to the Bill of Rights is a big scandal which is happened in 2013. Specifically, the Fourth Amendment states that the government proves probable cause or individualized suspicion before searching Americans' private information. However, the NSA surveillance programs disregard these Americans' rights. The NSA has been collecting data about every telephone call they have made, the number that was called, and the duration of the call. The NSA's action has caused a debate about whether or not the NSA surveillance has violated the Fourth Amendment. The NSA has many actions which relate to the Fourth Amendment. One of these actions is the NSA can collect metadata for all of telephone communications, track the┬ánumbers of both parties on a phone call, as well location, time and duration. The NSA can also access the smartphone app data or map the social networks. Other action is the National NSA could implant software in computers around the world to conduct surveillance on those machines. Meanwhile, according to the Fourth Amendment: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. ("Bill of Rights" am.4).
             The NSA's action relate to the Fourth Amendment because the NSA collected the American citizens' information while American citizens do not know about the NSA's actions. In other words, the Fourth Amendment prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures but the NSA disregards this right. Most people assert that the NSA has violated the Fourth Amendment. One of the reasons is that the NSA does not have a right to search Americans' private communications.
