Feds release details of secret spying program
SAN FRANCISCO - Federal officials have released previously classified documents showing misuse of a domestic spying program in 2009.
The documents released Tuesday show Obama administration officials misled a secret spy court about its use of domestic phone data.
The documents say officials accessed domestic phone numbers that weren't properly shown to have a deep enough connection to a terrorism investigation to warrant monitoring.
A federal judge in 2011 said in a declassified order that he was troubled by at least three incidents over three years where government officials admitted to mistaken collection of domestic data.
