They could be released as early as this week

National Security Agency surveillance programs will be declassified and available to the public as early as this week.

U.S. spy agencies are declassifying documents that shed light on surveillance programs in an attempt to place more transparency on such affairs. 

Also, the documents will reveal information about the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. 

James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, has been working on the declassification of some information by the Surveillance Court.

"I think there is a high likelihood of FISC opinions being declassified soon," said Clapper.

Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden uncovered the spying methods used by U.S. intelligence agencies earlier this year, which included collecting data from phones. This was used to fight terrorist attacks, but the public feared for their privacy after such revelations. 

Now, the release of declassified information is an attempt to restore a bit of trust and understanding regarding the intelligence agencies' actions.
