The Evolution Of The NSA's Domestic Spying

 Revelations about the American government collecting data on people's web and phone usage have shined a fresh spotlight on surveillance in the United States.

To put the story in context, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an activist group for increased privacy protections, has put together a timeline of what's happened with the National Security Agency since its creation in 1952.

The timeline looks at when officials signed important programs into action. It records court cases during both the Bush and Obama administrations that challenged the legality of different programs.
