-(EFF, <<Klein v. NSA>>)
+When we think of the term ``surveillance'',
+ the NSA usually comes to mind.
+
+The Electronic Frontier Foundation has been fighting the NSA
+ in court since 2006.
+In 2005, a former AT&T technician Mark Klein provided ``undisputed
+ evidence'' about an NSA-controlled room at AT&T named ``SG-3'', through
+ which all traffic passed.
+
+The EFF filed Hepting v. AT&T in 2006.
+But in 2008, both the government and AT&T were awarded retroactive immunity
+ through the FISA Amendments Act.
+The case was dismissed in 2009, along with dozens of other lawsuits.
+
+In response,
+ the EFF filed Jewel v. NSA.
+The case also benefitted from three additional whistleblowers.

+I have served on the Intelligence Committee for over a decade and I wish to

-(Add date)
+June 5th 2013.
+I remember where I was.
+Does anyone remember what that date represents?
-...
+The Guardian newspaper releases a leaked court order,
+ which orders Verizon to collect ``telephony metadata'' on /all/ calls,
+ /including local/.
+
+That ``business records'' provision of FISA that Ron Wyden was talking about
+ was partly declassified by the then-DNI James Clapper on June 6th, 2013.
+
+As Wyden predicted,
+ we were pretty stunned.
+And pretty pissed off.
+
+But it wasn't a surprise to many security researchers.
+You guys can take a look at the references for more information on that.

+
+- Smear campaign
+
+
+#+BEGIN_COMMENT
+These were serious leaks.
+They still are.
+And three days later---to our surprise---the source of the leaks was
+ revealed.
+
+And the world came to know Edward Snowden through a huge smear campaign.
+They pointed out that his girlfriend was a pole dancer.
+They tried to discredit his role at the agency.
+They tried to paint him as this social loner, and downplay his skills.
+
+Fortunately, that conversation didn't last long, and did not succeed.
+I'm not sure how many of you were here last year,
+ but Snowden gave the opening keynote to LP2016.
+He received a minute-long standing ovation.
+The energy in that room was incredible.
