Obama vows less intrusive spying

Friday, January 17 16:56:30

President Obama today said reforms to U.S. spy programs would include new rules for the use of National Security Letters, which can force companies to provide information to the government without informing the subject of the investigation.

Obama said in the future the secrecy of such letters would terminate within a fixed time unless the government demonstrated a real need for further secrecy.

Obama also said U.S. intelligence agencies would only use bulk collection of data for the purposes of fighting terrorism, protecting troops and allies, and combating crime.
