WHO WE ARE GET INVOLVED CANDIDATE SURVEYS C4L FOUNDATION ON THE ISSUES ABOUT AUDIT THE FED

Obama extends NSA spying program for 3 months

On Monday, the White House announced that President Obama has renewed the NSA's phone spying program for another 3 months. From The Washington Times:

The National Security Agency’s program collects the phone numbers, times and durations of calls made on U.S. telephone companies’ systems. The data is stored for five years and investigators are allowed to check it to build a network of connections if they have a number they believe to be associated with terrorism.

Administration lawyers argue the program is justified by a part of the Patriot Act that they said allows for bulk collection of data on Americans. Opponents — including the Patriot Act’s author — say that’s a misreading of the law.
Campaign for Liberty remains in opposition to this unconstitutional spying program and C4L members should contact their Representatives (202-224-3121) and tell them to support efforts to rein in the NSA.
