NSA is No Longer Using Mass Phone Surveillance Program Exposed by Edward Snowden

The NSA reportedly hasn’t been using the system used for mass phone surveillance for the past six months. So did the agency earlier claim that data collection is vital to national security? Maybe it isn’t so vial after all? After all, the nation’s top spy agency can’t be bothered to even use it these days.

Then again, perhaps that agency has found BETTER WAYS to spy on citizens???

Yes, this is the same spying program that Edward Snowden leaked to the media back in 2013. This particular program gathered domestic phone calls’ metadata that shows callers, recipients and the time of contact. Reportedly, the system didn’t work very well.

Details may be found in an article by Mariella Moon in the Engadget web site at: https://www.engadget.com/2019/03/05/nsa-mass-phone-surveillance-program-end/.
