Secret court approves Obama’s small tweaks to phone metadata collection | Ars Technica

Last month, President Barack Obama ordered changes to the way that bulk telephony metadata is stored—specifically, he said that the National Security Agency should no longer be the custodian of that data. He called for either the private sector or another non-governmental third party to hold it. Further, he ordered that searches of that data must be limited to two hops from a person of interest rather than three.

In other words, no change in the actual practice of ubiquitous surveillance.  Not that I expected anything from Barack Obama, given that the alphabet boys can probably fill in all those interesting blank areas in Obama’s personal history.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

    I’ve long figured that other people knew the missing story. Including say, Dictator Putin. I’m also certain BO knows they know. The rest of the story we can guess.
