In 2013, Reuters reported that the Snowden leaks reveal how the NSA has been giving information to a division of the DEA called the Special Operations Division. Apparently they've been using this information to convict American citizens, and then officers are given steps on how to cover up their tracks.

Then in 2015 USA Today reported about a "now-discontinued" operation in which the DEA was keeping billions of phone logs from calls made by American civilians to outside countries.

Also, two days ago, theThe Obama administration expanded the NSA's program a few days ago, allowing all the relevant divisions of government (DEA, FBI, CIA) to access raw content of the NSA's surveillance efforts.

Also, President Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress are expected to further expand the NSA program.

This got me thinking. Besides terrorist attacks and drug control, what are some of the benefits of mass surveillance on U.S. citizens?
