Should the CIA or the NSA be limited from collecting information regarding US persons on US soil? In my opinion no. There are other agencies such as the FBI For that. However if during an investigation information is obtained and it is pertinent to that investigation then yes. But that information should also be shared with the proper intelligence gathering agency. The NSA sometimes collects Americans private communications or data without individual warrants. When it does this from abroad, it is authorized by executive order 12333. In a report from February 11 2022 a release of government reports on 2 Central Intelligence Agency programs has revealed that the organization is most likely collecting more data on American citizens than previously known. When Congress left the executive order 12333 alone, civil liberties experts were concerned that intelligence agencies could still be collecting American data despite the new restrictions on FISA, especially since the digital era data is far less restricted by borders one standout revelation from that report is the sheer number of requests for the unmasking of United States persons information.
