Reuters touched on a bombshell report from the New York Times that stated the NSA is ending a program in which they could collect communications of American citizens that mentioned a foreign intelligence target.

The U.S. National Security Agency has halted a form of surveillance that allowed it to collect the digital communications of Americans that mentioned a foreign intelligence target without a warrant, three sources told Reuters.

The decision to stop the program, which collected messages sent or received internationally and which had been criticized by privacy advocates, was first reported by the New York Times.

The change is an attempt to remedy privacy compliance issues raised by rules implemented in 2011 by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which operates in secrecy, sources said. The chief concern had been that the specific kind of collection sometimes produced surveillance of messages that were wholly domestic because of technical reasons.

INFOWARS released a report last month showcasing leaked documents proving the NSA spied on Donald Trump and Alex Jones as far back as 2004. It is clear that they abused this program and are now beginning to cover up their tracks in an effort to hide what really happened.
