DNI Clapper declassifies dozens of new NSA/FISA docs

http://j.mp/HVZyhf  (IC on the Record / Tumblr)

    "Today I authorized the declassification and public release of
     additional documents relating to collection under Section 501,
     bringing the total to nearly 2000 pages of documents released to the
     public so far, including 20 orders and opinions of the Foreign
     Surveillance Court, 11 pleadings and other documents submitted to the
     Court, 24 documents provided to Congress, and 20 reports, training
     slides, and other internal documents describing the legal basis for
     the programs and how they operate.  The information released today
     includes a number of internal NSA documents, training slides and
     internal guidance, which demonstrate the care with which NSA's foreign
     intelligence collection pursuant to Section 501 is run, managed, and
     overseen. Also included is the United States Signals Intelligence
     Directive 18 which details policies and procedures to ensure NSA's
     missions and functions are conducted in a manner that safeguards the
     constitutional rights of U.S persons, and two opinions from the
     Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court concerning a now-discontinued
     NSA bulk electronic communications metadata program.  These documents
     were properly classified and their declassification was not done
