Media is saying that the CIA is now having more power to spy on us with just one warrant. Once that warrant is signed the FBI,CIA anyone part of the government can check confiscate anything from your house even if your innocent. The government can literally hack into anything electronic of yours they can access your cameras and use them to look at download all of what you do it you name it.You might be saying "oh it can stop ISIS attacks" Wrong! even the FBI admitted they haven't stopped a single ISIS attack.So i want to know if this is good or not? i say no


The CIA should most certainly be able to monitor people. It is a vital part of protecting our security as individuals, and as a nation. By agreeing and abiding to our current government, we are subjecting ourselves to the idea of a Social Contract. In order for the government to effectively do its job, to protect its people, we must be willing to give up some of our rights. The Internet is one of our society's greatest strengths, but its also one of our greatest weakness. It can be used as an outlet for harm, and thus must be monitored. This really shouldn't be an issue, unless, you have something to hide. The government couldn't care less about your plans for the weekend! All it seeks to do with this is ensure our public security.

Who knows if the CIA is watching everything we do. When we do it what time we do it. They are basically invading our privacy. Its against the 4th admendment. This is wrong the CIA shouldnt be spying on us, soon we will have no state rights or indivial rights to protect us. The government should track down hackers and crimnals not innocent people. Media says that the Uninted States were and still are spying on the United nations, they are our allies like what the heck. Its not of any of the united states business to spy on the untied nations. Soon the United states will have eyes and ears everywhere without people eveing knowing. This is getting scarier everyday someone somebody needs to stop this immediately before it gets worse.

"By law, the CIA is specifically prohibited from collecting foreign intelligence concerning the domestic activities of US citizens. Its mission is to collect information related to foreign intelligence and foreign counterintelligence. By direction of the president in Executive Order 12333 of 1981 and in accordance with procedures approved by the Attorney General, the CIA is restricted in the collection of intelligence information directed against US citizens. Collection is allowed only for an authorized intelligence purpose; for example, if there is a reason to believe that an individual is involved in espionage or international terrorist activities. The CIA's procedures require senior approval for any such collection that is allowed, and, depending on the collection technique employed, the sanction of the Director of National Intelligence and Attorney General may be required. These restrictions on the CIA have been in effect since the 1970s."
