Engadget: US could soon end mass phone surveillance program exposed by Snowden

Engadget: US could soon end mass phone surveillance program exposed by Snowden. “The US government might put an end to the controversial NSA phone surveillance program Edward Snowden exposed by the end of 2019. Republican congressional national security adviser Luke Murry revealed during a Lawfare podcast that Congress might not renew the USA Freedom Act, which authorizes the agency’s call data bulk collection, when it expires later this year. He also said that the NSA hasn’t even been using the system for the past six months, putting into question the agency’s previous claim that data collection is vital to national security.”
