Obama to announce changes to NSA data collection

(CNN) - President Barack Obama on Friday will announce the end of the controversial NSA telephone metadata collection program "as it currently exists," a senior administration official told CNN.

Obama will say that he is ordering a transition of the current intelligence-gathering program to one that addresses concerns of privacy and civil liberties, the official said.
