From the Office of the Director of National Intelligence's Tumblr site, we learn today that on Tuesday, the Department of Justice released three redacted primary orders of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ("FISC") from 2009---all three authorizing collection, from telecommunications companies, of telephony metadata under 50 U.S.C. 1861. Here are the orders:

FISC Docket Number BR 09-09 (July 7, 2009)

FISC Docket Number BR 09-15 (Oct. 30, 2009)

FISC Docket Number BR 09-19 (Dec. 16, 2009)
