Wyden, Udall Issue Statement on Effectiveness of Declassified NSA Programs | Press Releases | U.S. Senator Ron Wyden: ". . . . it appears that multiple terrorist plots have been disrupted at least in part because of information obtained under section 702 of FISA. However, it appears that the bulk phone records collection program under section 215 of the USA Patriot Act played little or no role in most of these disruptions. Saying that “these programs” have disrupted “dozens of potential terrorist plots” is misleading if the bulk phone records collection program is actually providing little or no unique value. . . ."
That pretty much sums up the NSA: providing little or no unique value.
