27. That's not entirely true.

What you said involves a lot of "spin". For instance, if a call is believed to involve an American on US soil, the surveillance is supposed to be ended immediately and all data destroyed - UNLESS the Director submits in writing that it should not for one of several reasons that are specifically enumerated. At that point, the NSA is required to forward the data to the FBI which has to get a court order based on probable cause.

Please read the underlying documents and not the "interpretations" (spin).
