Snowden already did a comprehensive review of the NSA. We know what needs to be done. This is just a stall tactic so it appears as though these politicians care about the constitution.

Most all in Congress are guilty of mismanaging the Police State and will likely not perform a rigorous review. We need a thorough house-cleaning (and Senate-cleaning). :)

The article says: "The lawmakers asked what steps were taken to protect Americans' privacy."-------- When this program started, the government obtained phone records without a court order. In 2006, that was found to be unconstitutional as an infringement on the powers of the judicial branch to determine whether records were being obtained in accordance with the law. Since 2006, the government needs to obtain judicial approval every three months. That was the biggest step to protect our privacy.
