White House attacks plans to curb NSA data collection

The White House is urging Congress to reject an attempt to stop the National Security Agency (NSA) collecting Americans’ phone records, CNN reports. With a key vote coming up, President Barack Obama’s spokesman said curbs on the NSA would “hastily dismantle” a vital counter-terrorism tool. NSA chief Gen Keith Alexander spent Tuesday lobbying Congressmen to vote against the proposed measure. Critics say NSA phone data collection is an unwarranted invasion of privacy.
