Before leak Asa mulled ending surveillance program a continued from Page i Alexander argued that the program was an essential tool because it allows the Fri and the Asa to Hunt for Domestic plots by searching american calling records against phone numbers associated with International terrorists. He and other Asa officials support Obama a plan to let the phone companies keep the data As Long As the government quickly can search it. Civil liberties activists say it was never a Good idea to allow a secret intelligence Agency to store records of americans private phone Calls and some Are not sure the government should search them in bulk. They say government can Point to Only a single Domestic terrorism defendant who was implicated by a phone records search under the program a san Diego taxi Driver who was convicted of raising $15,000 for a somali terrorist group. Some fault Asa for failing to disclose the internal debate about the program. A this is consistent with our experience with the intelligence Community a said rep. Justin Amash a Mich. A even map photo in this file photo a sign stands outside the National Security Agency Asa Campus in fort Meade my. The Asa considered abandoning its secret program to collect and store american calling records in the months before leaker Edward Snowden revealed the practice current and former intelligence officials say because some officials believed the costs outweighed its meager counter terrorism benefits. When we have classified briefings its like a game of 20 questions and we can to get to the Bottom of the proposal to halt phone records collection that was circulating in 2013 was separate from a 2009 examination of the program by Asa sparked by objections from a senior Asa official reported in november by the associated press. In that Case a senior Asa code breaker Learned about the program and concluded it was wrong for the Agency to collect and store american records. The Asa enlisted the Justice department in an examination of whether the search function could be preserved a with the records stores by the phone companies. That would not work without a change in the Law the review concluded. Alexander who retired in March 2014, opted to continue the program As is. But the internal debate continued current and former officials say and critics within the Asa pressed their Case against the program. The them the program had become an expensive insurance policy with an increasing number of loopholes Given the Lack of Mobile data. They also knew it would be deeply controversial if made Public. By 2013, some Asa officials were ready to Stop the bulk collection even though they knew they would lose the ability to search a database of . Calling records. As always the Fri still would be Able to obtain the phone records of suspects through a court order. There was a precedent for ending collection cold Turkey. Two years earlier the Asa cited similar Cost Benefit calculations when it stopped another secret program under which it was collecting americans email Metadata information showing who was communicating with whom but not the Content of the messages. That decision was made Public via the Snowden leaks. Alexander believed that the Fri and the Asa were still getting crucial value out of the phone records program in contrast to the email records program former Asa officials say. After the Snowden leaks Independent experts who looked at the program did no to agree. A presidential task Force examined Asa surveillance and recommended ending the phone records collection saying it posed unacceptable privacy risks while doing Little if anything to Stop terrorism. The task Force included Michael Morell a former Deputy Cia director and Richard Clarke a former White House counter terrorism adviser. A we cannot discount the risk in Light of the lessons of our own history that at some Point in the future High level government officials will decide that this massive database of extraordinarily sensitive private information is there for the plucking a the report said. Times dates and numbers called can provide a window into a persons activities and connections. A separate inquiry by the privacy and civil liberties oversight Board concluded the same thing. Davjd Medine chairman of that Board said the concerns raised internally by Asa officials were the same As theirs yet when Asa officials came before the privacy Board they a put on a pretty Strong defense for the program. Except their Success stories did no to pan out a he said. The Man who stops advertising to save Money is like the Man who stops the clock to save time.
