Congress to Investigate NSA

Congress is on the case: The day after The New York Times reported that the NSA’s interception of email and phone conversations “went beyond the broad legal limits established by Congress,” the Senate announced plans to investigate the matter. Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Dianne Feinstein said a hearing will be held within a month. The Justice Department claims to have corrected the NSA’s excesses, but has not disclosed any specifics.
