The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) of 1978 is a U.S. federal law prescribing procedures for the physical & electronic surveillance & collection of “foreign intelligence information” between or among “foreign powers” on territory under United States control.

FISA is codified in 50 U.S.C. 1801–1811, 1821–29, 1841–46, and 1861–62.

The subchapters of FISA provide for:

– Electronic Surveillance
– Physical Searches
– Pen Registers and Trap & Trace Devices for Foreign Intelligence Purposes
– Access to certain Business Records for Foreign Intelligence Purposes

The act created a court which meets in secret, & approves or denies requests for search warrants.
Only the number of warrants applied for, issued and denied, is reported.

In 1980 (the first full year after its inception), it approved 322 warrants.
This number has steadily grown to 2224 warrants in 2006.
Only 5 warrants have been rejected since the court first met in 1979.

The Act was amended by the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001, primarily to include terrorism on behalf of groups that are not specifically backed by a foreign government.

An overhaul of the bill, the Protect America Act of 2007 was signed into law on 2007-08-05.

FRIENDS OF THE FAMILY: The Inside Story of the Mafia Cops Case (Part 2)

Part 2 of 2.

In this interview, I sit down with Michael Vecchione, the Chief of the Rackets Division in the Kings County District Attorney’s Office, to discuss his new book “FRIENDS OF THE FAMILY: The Inside Story of the Mafia Cops Case.”

Friends of the Family is out on May 12, 2009.

Book Description
Detectives Louie Eppolito and Steve Caracappa were the most corrupt and dangerous cops in American history. When they retired in the early 1990s, they left behind a pile of bodies—and for more than a decade, it looked like they were going to get away with it.

As highly decorated NYPD detectives with access to the department’s most sensitive information, they sold their badges to the Mafia—and became murderers for the mob. Eventually they retired to Las Vegas, believing they had put their lives of murder and mayhem safely behind them. And they would have lived happily ever after, if not for one dedicated cop at the end of his career and an assistant district attorney. Detective Tommy Dades and Brooklyn Assistant DA Mike Vecchione turned this seemingly unsolvable cold-blooded case into one of the great law-and-order stories in the annals of New York City. And for the first time, in this book, Dades and Vecchione tell the whole inside story of the investigation.

For Detective Tommy Dades, the case began with a phone call from a distraught mother who just happened to mention an almost forgotten meeting that had taken place years earlier. Dades and Mike Vecchione had performed cold-case miracles before, but this one seemed impossible. Together, quietly and tenaciously, they began to uncover the hideous truth. A highly secret joint state and federal task force began building a body-by-body case against an incredible array of characters, from one of the most viciously insane Mafia bosses in history—who wanted to kill people he dreamed were plotting against him—to the one-eyed Jew who knew all the secrets. As the cold case got front-page-headline hot, Dades and Vecchione encountered an unexpected obstacle: the federal prosecutor plotted to take the case—and those headlines—away from Brooklyn.

For the first time, the two men who brought this incredible story to life reveal the epic confrontations that occurred behind the scenes and led to a stunning courtroom announcement—and came perilously close to destroying the case against the Mafia cops.

Friends of the Family is the complete, inside story of the historic case that rocked the world of law enforcement.
