Obama’s Changing NSA Plans

Mon Aug 12, 2013 AT 6:00 AM EDT

The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said on Sunday that President Obama has inadequately explained the National Security Agency’s controversial telephone surveillance program, The Hill reports.  Rep. Michael McCaul said on “Meet The Press” that “because after the IRS scandal, where people don’t trust this government with their tax records, they sure don’t trust them with their phone records.”  The Washington Post  reports the Obama administration points to checks and balances from Congress as a key rationale for supporting bulk collection of Americans’ telephone communications data, but several lawmakers responsible for overseeing the program in recent years say that they felt limited in their ability to challenge its scope and legality. Finally, Politico reports Obama’s proposed NSA plans drew a lukewarm response.
