These are routine orders, nothing new," Thomas Drake, National Security Agency whistleblower who was charged with violating the Espionage Act by the Obama administration, says. "What’s new is we’re seeing an actual order. And people are somehow surprised by it. The fact remains that this program has been in place for quite some time. It was actually started shortly after 9/11. The PATRIOT Act was the enabling mechanism that allowed the United States government in secret to acquire subscriber records from any company."
