Obama urged to set limits on NSA surveillance program

Days after a federal judge ruled that the NSA's phone tracking practices are unconstitutional , a panel of outside advisers came up with 46 recommendations and called for some restrictions to the program's reach.

The five-person panel, made up of legal and intelligence experts, specially urged President Obama that phone metadata be kept in the hands of a private consortium or in the safety of telecommunications companies prior to handing them over to the NSA. A court order is then required to access the information, the panel said.

President Obama was reportedly open to many of the recommendations, but rejected a plan to assign separate officials to lead the NSA and the Pentagon's United States Cyber Command. The question now is: does the president have the courage to implement the changes.
