NSA Plans To Cut Back On The Number Of Private Citizen Emails It Reads

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The National Security Agency is promising to cut back on the number of private emails it’s been reading and collecting.

Alex DeMetrick reports, it’s ending a controversial surveillance technique that’s focused on U.S. citizens.

For nearly 10 years, the NSA has been prying into the private emails of citizens. Congress OK’d it when it amended how foreign intelligence can be collected.

“It authorized NSA to look into strictly personal e-mails between U.S. citizens,” says Dr. Michael Greenberger, of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security. “They got the right simply because a foreign operative of foreign operation was mentioned.”

That practice came to light when former NSA contractor Edward Snowden publicly revealed it.
