NSA Began Phasing Eavesdroppers

The US National Security Agency began to phase out the eavesdropping program that collected the phone records of US citizens and stored, now the Senate no agreement has been reached on an extension of the program, reports the Associated Press .

On June 1 expires section 215 of the Patriot Act, which allows intelligence services may collect phone records of Americans.Investigation FBI also uses this section, only to collect financial and other information in national security cases. As a solution was devised a new proposal, the USA Freedom Act.

This proposal would end the massive storage of telephone data, but would allow the NSA to the data store by searching telecom providers by case. However, the proposal fell short of three votes, since the Republicans voted against it. Because the outcome is the NSA now started to reduce the search of domestic telephone data. On May 31, the Senate comes back together for one last rescue attempt.
