The NSA Will Destroy the Bulk Phone Records It Collected

One month after a law was passed ending the NSA’s bulk collection of US phone records, the director of intelligence announced that records previously collected by the spy agency will be destroyed, according to the Associated Press.

The director of national intelligence did not say when the records would be destroyed, but noted that they must be retained as long as lawsuits around the collection program are ongoing.
