NSA collected more of your personal data

Former NSA chief Gen. Keith Alexander defended the NSA's bulk data collection by saying that all his former employers did was collect metadata. He defined that as "two phone numbers, date, time and duration of [the] call." Unfortunately, newly-declassified documents have shown that the agency had difficulty just collecting those pieces of information, and instead stored the full texts of e-mails and other messages sent online. #tech
