TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" TOP

SECRET SECURITY TOOL, WHY THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SEES

MILLIONS OF TELEPHONE

COMMUNICATIONS.

PLUS FLOODING AROUND THE

WORLD FROM EAST COAST TO

GERMANY.

AND HOW RADICAL ISLAM IS

WREAKING HAVOC IN GREAT BRITAIN

AND BEYOND.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION CALLS IT A

CRITICAL TOOL BUT OTHERS SAY IT

IS A VIOLATION OF CIVIL

LIBERTIES.

GOOD EVENING I AM MARK MARTIN.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

EVEN SO THE WHITE HOUSE IS

DEFENDING ITS ORDER TO COLLECT

PHONE RECORDS OF MILLIONS OF

RISEN CUSTOMERS.

ONE CONGRESSMAN SAID IT HELP

PREVENT A TERROR ACT AND A TOP

SECRET TOP ORDER.

JOHN WAAGE HAS MORE IN TONIGHT'S

TOP STORY.

REPORTER: BRITAIN'S GUARDIAN

NEWSPAPER OBTAINED A COPY OF THE

ORDER.

MILLIONS OF AMERICANS REGARDLESS

IF THEY ARE SUSPECTED OF DOING

WRONG.

THE SECRET COURT GRANTED THE

ORDER TO THE NATIONAL SECURITY

AGENCY AND RUNS THROUGH JULY

19TH AND COVERS THE PHONE

NUMBERS OF BOTH PARTIES,

LOCATION, DATA, CALL DURATION

AND TIME OF ALL CALLS BOTH

INSIDE THE U.S. AND BETWEEN THE

U.S. AND OTHER COUNTRIES.

ALTHOUGH THE WHITE HOUSE WON'T

FORMALLY COMMENT ON THE GUARDIAN

STORY.

IT POINTS OUT CONGRESS PASSED

THE FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE

SURVEILLANCE ACT WHICH ALLOWS

ADMINISTRATION TO SPY ON

AMERICANS.

ORDER REQUESTED 10 DAYS AFTER

THE BOSTON MARATHON BOMBING

WHICH IS A REMINDER OF THE

THREATS THE COUNTRY FACES.

THE GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN

SUCCESSFUL OF IDENTIFYING PEOPLE

WITH THIS PROGRAM.

REPORTER: DIANNE FEINSTEIN

DEFENDED THIS ORDER.

WE WANT TO PROTECT PEOPLE'S

RIGHTS.

THAT IS WHY THIS IS DONE.

THE ORDER DIDN'T ALLOW THE

GOVERNMENT TO LISTEN IN.

THE AMERICAN CIVIL'S UNION

CALLED IT ALARMING.

FORMER VICE PRESIDENT AL GORE

TWEETED: IS IT JUST ME OR

BLANKET SURVEILLANCE OBSCENELY

OUTRAGEOUS.

THIS AFFECTS OVER 120 MILLION

ROOIZ VERIZON.

IT COMES AT A SENSITIVE TIME

FOR THE IRS HARASSMENT OF

CONSERVATIVES.

JOHN WAAGE, CBN NEWS.

FOR MORE, WE TURN TO TO

STEPHEN FROM THE HERITAGE

FOUNDATION.

IS THIS SOMETHING NEW?

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT

ACCORDING TO SENATOR FEINSTEIN

HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR SEVEN

YEARS.

THIS IS A CARRY OVER FROM THE

PREVIOUS ADMINISTRATION.

NOTHING NEW JUST SUDDENLY GOT

OUT IN THE PUBLIC.

VERIZON HAS 100 MILLION CELL

PHONE CUSTOMERS AND MILLIONS ON

COMMERCIAL AND LAND LINES.

I AM A VERIZON CUSTOMER, SHOULD

WE BE WORRIED?

YOU SHOULD NOT BE WORRIED

UNLESS YOU ARE INVOLVED IN

TERRORIST ACTIVITIES.

NONE OF THE DATA SHOWS WHAT YOU

SAID OR SPECIFIC CONTENT OF YOUR

CALLS.

IT IS ONLY WHAT THEY REFER TO AS

THE METADATA, WHERE THE CALL

CAME FROM AND WHERE IT WAS

GOING.

THEY USE THAT IN ANALYSIS.

NO, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY

ABOUT AS A LAW ABIDING CITIZEN.

THIS WAS A RECORDING OF

TELEPHONE RECORDS, NOT

CONVERSATIONS, DOES THAT MAKE A

DIFFERENCE IN WHAT IS PROTECTED

IN THE CONSTITUTION, BREAK IT

DOWN?

THIS TYPE OF DATA IS NOT

PROTECTED UNDER THE

CONSTITUTION.

IT IS PERFECTLY LEGAL AND

CONSTITUTIONAL FOR THE

GOVERNMENT TO COLLECT THE

ANALYSIS.

IF THEY FIND A PROBLEM, THEY ARE

REQUIRED TO GO BACK TO THE COURT

TO GET ADDITIONAL AUTHORIZATIONS

TO LOOK MORE DEEPLY.

CIVIL LIBERTIES OF THE AMERICAN

PUBLIC ARE STILL PROTECTED.

HAS THE WHITE HOUSE MADE THIS

STORY BIGGER BECAUSE IRS

WIRETAPPING OF JOURNALIST?

EVERYBODY'S SENSITIVITIES ARE

HEIGHTENED.

THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN A BIG STORY

REGARDLESS.

OKAY, STEPHEN OF THE HERITAGE

FOUNDATI

FOUNDATION, THANK YOU.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME.

A NEW POLL FIND THAT MAJORITY

OF AMERICANS SUPPORTS DRONE

STRIKES FINDS 66% IN FAVOR, ONLY

16% OPPOSE THE STRIKES, 15%
