Report: Obama to give up NSA's phone call sweep

Published: 03.25.14, 08:01 / Israel News

WASHINGTON - The National Security Agency may be getting out of the business of sweeping up and storing vast amounts of data on people's phone calls.

 

The New York Times reported late Monday that the Obama administration this week will propose that Congress overhaul the electronic surveillance program.

 

The newspaper said the administration wants phone companies to keep the bulk records for 18 months, as they do now, and seeks to preserve its ability to see certain records in specific circumstances approved by a judge.

 

But no longer would the NSA systematically collect the phone data and hold it for up to five years. (AP)
