Bulk Collection of Signals Intelligence: Technical Options (2015)

Something to download and read on those long, rainy spring nights.
The Bulk Collection of Signals Intelligence: Technical Options study is a result of an activity called for in Presidential Policy Directive 28 (PPD-28), issued by President Obama in January 2014, to evaluate U.S. signals intelligence practices. The directive instructed the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to produce a report within one year "assessing the feasibility of creating software that would allow the intelligence community more easily to conduct targeted information acquisition rather than bulk collection."

Get a fuckin warrant! (TM).

Hmm one year to craft it and another year to implement it - just so happens to land right at the very end of the usurpers term. Imagine that.

I read that they are choking on 'meta data' and want to target their data collection to reduce the huge volume which is overwhealming thier capacity to examine it all ...
