Coming Up: Obama Outlines NSA Changes

Leaks from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden have revealed a great deal about the NSA's surveillance programs. Obama is laying out his thinking about what needs to be done differently.

President Obama is this morning set to announce the changes he believes need to be made to the way the National Security Agency collects, analyzes and stores massive amounts of data about the phone calls and electronic communications of people around the world — including Americans.

Our earlier post, "Obama Expected To Say NSA Should Not Hold 'Metadata'," previewed his remarks.

We'll be posting during Obama's address. He's due to start at 11 a.m ET. We're also embedding the White House's livestream for those who wish to watch.
