Unless Congress votes to extend it, FISA Section 702 will expire at the end of the year. CERL Advisory Council member George Croner joined Washington Journal C-SPAN to discuss the surveillance program and what is in store for the reauthorization debate.
According to Croner, “I might point out, to this date, as far as I know, the United States is the only country in the world that imposes any kind of judicial intervention in its foreign intelligence surveillance process.”
George Croner is a member of the CERL Advisory Council. He is a Senior Fellow in the Program on National Security at the Foreign Policy Research Institute, is a 1975 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy (with distinction) and a 1980 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School (with honors). From 1984 through 1988, while holding the highest security clearance authorized by the U.S. government (TS/SCI), Mr. Croner served in the Operations Division of the Office of General Counsel at the National Security Agency (NSA) which had legal oversight responsibility for NSA’s signals intelligence (SIGINT) operations, including compliance with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).
