NSA Claim Policy Change

I have no confidence in this report given its in the NSA's interest to say such things to the public but here goes..

The US National Security Agency (NSA) is to end surveillance on messages sent by US citizens that mention foreign intelligence targets.
The NSA was allowed to collect this information without a warrant thanks to a US law passed in 2008.

In a statement it said that an internal review had revealed several problems with the spying programme and its effect on US citizens' privacy.
Surveillance experts said the NSA's decision was "very significant".
The NSA had been widely criticised because using Fisa had meant it had scooped up lots of messages, texts and other material sent by Americans without having to apply for a warrant.

In its statement, the NSA said technical limits, privacy problems and the difficulty of carrying out this type of surveillance had driven its decision. It also said it would delete the "vast majority" of data collected via this spying programme.

In this field, no news is good news  :suspious:
