The Basis for the NSA’s Call-Tracking Program Has Disappeared, If It Ever Existed [Updated]

Via Just Security.org, Jameel Jaffer, Deputy Legal Director at the American Civil Liberties Union and Director of the ACLU’s Center for Democracy writes:

There’s a significant discrepancy, one that deserves more attention, between what the NSA told the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court five years ago about the call-tracking program and what the agency is telling ordinary federal courts about the program now.  It told the FISC five years ago that the program was indispensable, but it’s saying something quite different today.
