Below is this months FAS Secrecy Newsletter. Some very interesting artlcles and research papers are in links in this months newsletter.

DOMESTIC TERRORISM: SOME CONSIDERATIONS

The problem of domestic terrorism is distinct from that of foreign terrorism because of the constitutional protections enjoyed by U.S. persons, the Congressional Research Service explained last week.

“Constitutional principles – – including federalism and the rights to free speech, free association, peaceable assembly, petition for the redress of grievances – – may complicate the task of conferring domestic law enforcement with the tools of foreign intelligence gathering.” See Domestic Terrorism: Some Considerations, CRS Legal Sidebar, August 12, 2019.

Some other noteworthy new publications from the Congressional Research Service include the following.

Convergence of Cyberspace Operations and Electronic Warfare, CRS In Focus, August 13, 2019
