A measure that President Obama is considering as a way to curb the National Security Agency’s mass storage of phone data is already facing resistance — not only from the intelligence community but also from privacy advocates, the phone industry and some lawmakers.Obama last week suggested that he was open to the idea of requiring phone companies to store the records and allowing the government to search them under strict guidelines.
