WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)– Microsoft's top lawyer called on Congress and the White House to reform the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and stop the "unfettered collection of bulk data" by the government, Cnet reported.
Microsoft's top lawyer continued his months-long public campaign to pressure the United States government to reform the secret data collection practices revealed in documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden in 2013.
Speaking Tuesday morning at the Brookings Institution in Washington, DC, the company's general counsel, Brad Smith, called on Congress and the White House to stop what he described as "the unfettered collection of bulk data" by the government and argued for the reform of the secret FISA court.
"I want law enforcement to do its job in an effective way pursuant to the rule of law," he said. "If we can't get to that world, then law enforcement is going to have a bleak future anyway." – CNet
