So the Civil Liberties Review Board has now found that not a single case exists of the NSA thwarting a terrorist attack with its phone data collection program. Remember, this is the program th at collects data on virtually every phone call made in the US. The Board was established by the government after 9/11. The Board recommends stopping the program, but it has no legal authority. The Obama administration has made changes to the program in response to criticism, but many civil liberties advocates dismiss them as not sufficient. I was willing to give the government some benefit of the doubt when it comes to fighting terrorism, but I think it is time now for thepr ogram to go. The astounding lack of results, at the cost of loss of our privacy, is a severe indictment of the NSA. The surveillance should stop now.
