The NSA’s domestic phone records program is dead for now. But the government has many ways to get phone data.

___________________________________________________________________________________________

A controversial program that allowed the government to collect Americans' phone records has ended, at least temporarily. The Senate adjourned Sunday without coming to an agreement about the future of the program — letting the legal authority for several national security programs expire.

Three different parts of the USA Patriot Act sunset — but it was Section 215, the provision used to authorize the National Security Agency program that collected the phone records of millions of Americans, that was at the heart of debate.

Members of the Obama administration have warned that the lapse of the program could harm national security. "These tools give us better ability to see the tactical moves that various terrorist groups or individuals are making," said CIA Director John Brennan during a "Face the Nation" appearance Sunday.
