January 17. 2014

This is a follow-up to an exclusive story I broke first (NSA Workers Admit To Reading The Emails And Listening To The Calls Of Americans In Violation Of The Law). U.S. President Barack Obama has pledged to reform the National Security Agency (NSA) after former employee, Edward Snowden, presented the world with hard evidence that the agency is spying on Americans in violation of the Constitution.

The scandal has grown worse over the past several months, after Snowden first made the information public last summer, with the latest revelation exposing the fact the NSA illegally collects 200 million domestic and international text messages per day, in violation of the law.

President Obama has stated via a representative that he, "Will require intelligence agencies to obtain permission from a secret court before tapping into a vast trove of telephone data, but he will leave the data in the hands of the government for now." Many domestic and global citizens have voiced their displeasure at the NSA's illegal spying, putting pressure on President Obama to make changes.
