    Revealed: NSA collecting phone records of millions of Americans daily [W:452]

    Revealed: NSA collecting phone records of millions of Americans daily

    The National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon, one of America's largest telecoms providers, under a top secret court order issued in April.

    The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an "ongoing, daily basis" to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the US and between the US and other countries.

    The document shows for the first time that under the Obama administration the communication records of millions of US citizens are being collected indiscriminately and in bulk regardless of whether they are suspected of any wrongdoing.

    Seriously, spin that, Obama fans.

    The Patriot Act (I'm assuming that this is covered by the Patriot Act) gets better and better all the time.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    The article states that the Patriot Act is the fig leaf used for the over reach. But nobody but the President (read: no SANE person) interprets the provisions that broadly.

    ... So Obama railing against the Patriot Act was really just a way of saying "You REALLY don't want to trust ME with that..."

    Since the court order was just issued in April, I don't see how this can be considered old news. Not surprised Bush would be blamed though.

    This from the same government you trust to maintain permanent records of our dna, even if never charged with a crime.

    String Bean!! Quite the memory you have there.

    You didn't read anything in my response that indicated I had a problem with them collecting phone numbers though, did you?
