These numbers need to be taken with a very large grain of salt. Ashcroft himself pretty much acknowledged this in Ted Bridis' AP report: >Attorney General John Ashcroft said Tuesday the new Patriot Act, which >amended the 1978 surveillance statute, made it easier for authorities >to request fewer warrants since they don't expire as quickly and can >be used in some cases across jurisdictions. > >"The Patriot Act provides some measures of efficiency that can be of >assistance to us, and I think it would be fair to interpret the data >in light of that," Ashcroft said. Among other things, the PATRIOT Act also authorizes what DOJ has characterized as "generic" FISA orders which allow one warrant to be served on multiple service providers. These new numbers underscore the inadequacy of the current reporting requirements; we really need to know how many individuals and how many communications facilities were covered by these orders. "Secret FISA court approved fewer surveillance applications in 2001"
