Joe Biden: Congress should investigate the NSA for logging phone callsSubmitted by Shawker on Wed, 06/12/2013 - 17:32
Saw this clip today. I can't find the original clip it was taken from but it looks like 2006 Joe Biden is calling on congress to investigate the logging of phone calls. This is what he was responding to:
On May 10, 2006, USA Today reported that the NSA has had a separate, previously undisclosed program in place since 9/11 to build a database of information about calls placed within the United States, including phone numbers, and the date and duration of the calls. According to the article, phone companies AT&T, Verizon, and Bell South disclosed the records to the NSA, while Qwest did not. The article quotes an unnamed source that "it's the largest database ever assembled in the world." Most reports indicate that this program is different from the Terrorist Surveillance Program. The administration did not confirmed the existence of this aspect of the program.
