ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The author also discusses the role played by the FBI in terrorist attacks in the country. It is reported that much of the FBI's anti-terrorist work is done under the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which created a special court to which the FBI would bring wiretap requests in counterintelligence cases. According to the author, the standard for a FISA warrant is not as high as that for an ordinary criminal wiretap warrant, but does require a finding of probable cause that the target is an agent of a foreign power or a group engaged in international terrorism or activities in preparation therefore.
