It has been reported that the U.S. NSA (National Security Agency) has been collecting phone records of domestic phone calls of millions of Americans.

Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont said, “Are you telling me that tens of millions of Americans are involved with al Qaeda?” Leahy asked. “These are tens of millions of Americans who are not suspected of anything … Where does it stop?”
