Wondering how long the NSA has been spying on you? The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), has compiled all evidence gathered of domestic spying and arranged it into a timeline that details sources, which range from anonymous government officials, named government officials, court documents, sworn testimony, news articles and even Inspector General reports.
Controversy behind the National Security Agency has gained the spotlight after The Guardian leaked a top-secret order from the Foreign Intelligence Service Court (FISC) that ordered Verizon to provide call records of all calls made within the United States. However, the timeline illustrates that the NSA allegedly has been conducting domestic surveillance on Americans since at least 2001. Much of the evidence available on the timeline can be found on a summary of evidence from the court case Jewel v. NSA. Take a look at the timeline along with the summary here.
