    White House panel proposes curbing NSA surveillance

    A White House-appointed panel on Wednesday proposed curbs on some key National Security Agency surveillance operations, recommending limits on a program to collect records of billions of telephone calls and new tests before Washington spies on foreign leaders.
    Among the panel's proposals, made in the wake of revelations by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, the most contentious may be its recommendation that the eavesdropping agency halt bulk collection of the phone call records, known as "metadata."
    Instead, it said, those records should be held by telecommunications providers or a private third party. In a further limitation, the U.S. government would need an order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for each search of the data.

    I'm sure there are room for cuts. As long as you don't cut benefits for the criminal aliens. I am SO glad that they would rather take it from my pension. Don't get me wrong, I actually defended cutting the military pension on base to other military members, saying that if I can support cuts that effect other people, I should be able to do it when they want to cut things that effect me. I stand by that. But to make a single cut that effects any resident before fixing loopholes that would stop payouts to criminal aliens, that is a load of horseshit.

    Yeah... I'd be happier if they said they weren't going to reduce surveillance -- or even increase it. With the administration's track record, I think that'd lead to no more surveillance at all!
