    For instance, on my gmail account I am storing over 1,000 emails.  Does the NSA have access to these emails without the need for a FISA request?
    Yes.
    Can they search millions of emails and then only go to FISA when they need the user account info?
    They data mine the emails without going to FISA. They don't even need to know the account passwords.
    Google doesn't have to comply with PRISM. The NSA just has to collect all traffic on ports 25, 80 and 443 before it even gets to Google servers.

    •  That would be at the ISP level then (0+ / 0-)

      If they're packet sniffing, then it's the Comcasts and the AT&Ts we should be angry at.

        We've known the telcos were involved in this since 2006. This is the reason the FISA Amendment Act of 2008 made telco involvement retroactively legal. The ISPs have been allowing the NSA to do this for years.
