NSA chief admits testing US cellphone tracking

WASHINGTON (AP) - National Security Agency chief Gen. Keith Alexander revealed today that his spy agency once tested whether it could track Americans’ cell phone locations, in addition to its practice of sweeping broad information about calls made. Alexander and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on proposed reforms to the NSA’s surveillance of phone and internet usage around the world, exposed in June by former NSA analyst Edward Snowden. But neither spy chief discussed proposed reforms; instead they were questioned about new potential abuses that have come to light since then.

No surprise here. If anyone actually believes that the NSA isn't engaged in practices that the Founding Fathers would find to be in violation of the Constitution dream on.
