Obama Signs NSA Limits Into Law [VIDEO]

By

On Tuesday night, President Obama signed into law a measure to rein in the National Security Agency’s bulk collection of Americans’ telephone data.

The Senate passed the measure earlier Tuesday, skipping over Senate leader Mitch McConnell’s proposed amendments, which would’ve torn out a provision requiring greater transparency from the secret court that authorizes domestic surveillance.
