A USA Today article on May 11, 2006, mentioned that the National Security Agency (NSA) was secretly collecting phone call records of American citizens. ” ‘It’s the largest database ever assembled in the world,’ said one person about the NSA’s phone-record program, adding that it was the agency’s goal ‘to create a database of every call ever made’ within the U.S.”
