Obama Readies Overhaul of NSA

President Obama "is leaning toward extending broad privacy protections to non-U.S. citizens and is seriously considering restructuring the National Security Agency program that collects phone-call data of nearly all Americans," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"Mr. Obama plans to unveil these and other changes to surveillance programs as soon as next week... Though he has made no final decisions on some of the most controversial proposals, Mr. Obama is nearing the end of his closely watched assessment of surveillance reforms that will define the NSA's rules of the road for years to come."
