Should U.S. Law Protect the Privacy of Foreigners Abroad?

An Analysis from the Lawfare blog:
 
Professor Orin Kerr, a law professor at the George Washington University Law School, provides an overview of privacy laws in regards to intelligence collection.
 
Professor Kerr questions the argument that foreigners should be protected by U.S. privacy laws for intelligence collection. Professor Kerr’s argument concludes by questioning the notion that spying on allies harms national security. These type of arguments are made on a “utilitarian” level, but often not accompanied with data to support the claim, according to Professor Kerr.
