    Obama to Call for End to N.S.A.ís Bulk Data Collection

    WASHINGTON ó The Obama administration is preparing to unveil a legislative proposal for a far-reaching overhaul of the National Security Agencyís once-secret bulk phone records program in a way that ó if approved by Congress ó would end the aspect that has most alarmed privacy advocates since its existence was leaked last year, according to senior administration officials.Under the proposal, they said, N.S.A. would end its systematic collection of data about Americansí calling habits. The records would stay in the hands of phone companies, which would not be required to retain the data for any longer than they normally would. And the N.S.A. could obtain specific records only with permission from a judge, using a new kind of court order.
    In a speech in January, President Obama said he wanted to get the N.S.A. out of the business of collecting call records in bulk while preserving the programís capabilities. He acknowledged, however, that there was no easy way to do so, and had instructed Justice Department and intelligence officials to come up with a plan by March 28 ó Friday ó when the current court order authorizing the program expires.
    As part of the proposal, the administration has decided to ask the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to renew the program as it currently exists for at least one more 90-day cycle, senior administration officials said. But under the plan the administration has developed and now advocates, the officials said, it would later undergo major changes.

    I don't think you realize how much power and control our intelligence agencies have. They've told our president's more than once to go pound sand.

    You do realize that the NSA works directly for The President...right? All he has to do, is pick up the phone, give the director instructions and if the director tells him to, "pound sand", Obama fires his ass.

    If we had a real leader, he would exert his power appropriately, but...

    More transparent pandering in an attempt to keep the senate. Why do you think it took him 5 years to posture as he now is?

    What's funny--or sad--is that if he actually puts a stop the NSA surveillance, all the Obama disciples will tell us how great he is for putting a stop to the NSA surveillance; all in the face of adversity, of course.

    Most of the followers of The Messiah have no clue who is actually on the cabinet.
