N.S.A. Halts Collection of Americans’ Emails About Foreign Targets

“This change ends a practice that allowed Americans’ communications to be collected without a warrant merely for mentioning a foreign target,”



The National Security Agency will no longer use a controversial surveillance tactic that lets the spy agency sift through electronic communications to find communications about its surveillance targets

We should all be moving to encrypted email services anyway. I use Proton Mail.

I like the sound of this, but let me know when the NSA demolishes the data warehouse they are building in Utah or wherever to store everyone's communications "just in case" they want to look at them later.
