 +===Surveillance Allowed Under Two Cenarios===
  
 +==Without a Court Order==
 +The President may authorize, through the Attorney General, electronic surveillance without a court order for the period of one year provided it is only for foreign intelligence information;​ targeting foreign powers or their agents; and there is no substantial likelihood that the surveillance will acquire the contents of any communication to which a United States person is a party.[(:​ForeignIntelligenceSurveillanceAct>>​

 +==With a Court Order==
 +The government may seek a court order permitting the surveillance using the FISA court. Approval of a FISA application requires the court find probable cause that the target of the surveillance be a "​foreign power" or an "agent of a foreign power",​ and that the places at which surveillance is requested is used or will be used by that foreign power or its agent. In addition, the court must find that the proposed surveillance meet certain "​minimization requirements"​ for information pertaining to U.S. persons.[(:​ForeignIntelligenceSurveillanceAct>>​
