Congress To Review Domestic Surveillance Laws

They've been the ones repeatedly approving the laws that have caused recent uproar


Lawmakers will review domestic surveillance laws in the wake of leaked document showing the National Security Agency has collected millions of phone records, which provoked an uproar in the Capitol.

The government's admission of "PRISM," a classified program in which data is mined from the servers of nine leading Internet companies, is also expected to garner scrutiny. It allows the government to extract photos, videos, emails, audio and documents to track individuals. An administration official on Thursday night insisted it was not used to track U.S. citizens.
