WASHINGTON — The White House says President Barack Obama will announce on Jan. 17 the results of his review of National Security Agency surveillance programs.
Ahead of his speech, Obama has been meeting with lawmakers, intelligence officials, technology companies and privacy groups. He’s also considering more than 40 recommendations from a presidential commission that proposed broad changes to the NSA’s powers.
Obama is expected to announce curbs on U.S. spying on friendly foreign leaders. He’s also seriously considering a plan that would strip the NSA of its ability to store phone record data from millions of Americans.
The president has indicated he is open to significant changes to the nation’s surveillance programs.
