Er, no. SINA is to protect the connection from the provider
to the agency (which is going over the internet), essentially
hardware VPN boxes. The provider still sets up what to feed
into that box, based on written orders from the agency
(which contains subscriber identification and the destination
in the SINA VPN).

That is LI; I don't know what the secret services are doing.

In contrast, in russia (and probably many other countries)
selecting subscribers to be targeted is done directly
over the wire (the interface generically called X1), and
in russia ISP aren't even allowed to look who is tagged.

That is still LI, it is just the russian value of 'L',
and the questions how legal the target selection is
in absense of control by the ISP or a judge.
