Privacy Board: NSA telephone records program illegal

By Evan Perez

The National Security Agency program that collects data on nearly every U.S. phone call isn't legal, a privacy review board said Thursday in a newly released report.

Moreover, the five-member Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board said it's been largely useless in thwarting terrorism.

"We have not identified a single instance involving a threat to the United States in which the program made a concrete difference in the outcome of a counterterrorism investigation," the board wrote in the report released Thursday.

    This ignominious organization called the NSA needs to dismantled once and for all. The Privacy board has it right and I wish to thank those five people on it.

    Can you measure the effect living as a terrorist and seeing your fellow terrorist make a phone call and blow up in a puff of smoke the next day? Lets assume the 100% of its use has been outside the country. Would that not be considered a preemptive strike? How could you possibly measure the difference anyway. This is a case where you can find a way to support any stance and just pick numbers that correlate to what you want to promote.
