explained previously, Section 702 grants the US government the authority to target the communications of foreign individuals, assumed to be outside the US, for the purpose of gathering foreign intelligence. While forbidding the collection of information on individuals within the US (or from US citizens directly), the government can compel internet service providers and telephone companies to aid in the collection of information from targeted individuals. The US government, however, is allowed to obtain further information about US citizens “incidentally” caught up in the surveillance of foreigners. There are supposedly strict rules governing these probes (the process is overseen by the FISA court). Controversially, intelligence agencies have shared their information with domestic law enforcement officials, leading to investigations and indictments for purely domestic crimes.
