Obama’s NSA Review Panel Calls Phone-Snooping An Abuse Of Patriot Act

President Obama’s internal review panel has accused the government of abusing the Patriot Act and said many of the intelligence community’s key tools should be reined in, including the NSA’s phone-snooping program and the FBI’s use of national security letters to demand secret information from private businesses, according to the stunning report released Wednesday.

The panel told Mr. Obama to scrap the National Security Agency’s phone-records collection program, saying it’s an infringement of privacy, and said the government instead should ask phone companies to store the records. The NSA would be able to ask for the records only when it deems national security is at stake.

Thank you Bush and congress for giving us the knee jerk reaction to 9/11. This was a gift to Obama and every President to come.
The biggest threat to the constitution ever enacted.
