NSA Phone Tracking

NSA needs to STOP!!

~The NSA is invading people's privacy. And some people don't like the fact that they are doing that. They are having a debate on rather they can spy on our phones or not. The NSA shouldn't be searching through people's personal things. I think the NSA shouldn't spy on anyone's phone without having a reason to believe something is going to happen. It can also lead to terrorism acts.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate has blocked a bill to end bulk collection of American phone records by the National Security Agency. The measure was President Barack Obama’s signature proposal to rein in domestic surveillance.

Tuesday’s vote was largely along party lines, with most Democrats supporting the bill and most Republicans voting to kill it. The Republican-controlled House had previously passed a version of the bill.

The legislation would have allowed the NSA in terrorism investigations to query the records held by the telephone companies.

The revelation that the spying agency had been collecting and storing domestic phone records since shortly after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, was among the most significant by Edward Snowden, a former agency network administrator who turned over secret NSA documents to journalists.
