If It Weren’t For Edward Snowden, This Would Not Be Happening
We should give him a nod of thanks for President Obama finally asking the NSA to curb bulk collection of phone records.
The White House is preparing a proposal that would curb the bulk collection of phone records by the National Security Agency, the New York Times reported on Monday, citing administration officials.
Obama in January outlined a series of limited reforms to NSA data-gathering, banning eavesdropping on the leaders of friendly or allied nations and proposing some changes to how NSA treats Americans’ phone data.
The most sweeping program, collection of telephone “metadata,” comes up for reauthorization on Friday.
Obama had asked Attorney General Eric Holder and the U.S. intelligence community to report back to him before that deadline on how to preserve the necessary capabilities of the program, without the government holding the metadata.
