Even after President Obama said closer supervision and tougher guidelines for intelligence gathering would be put in place, Republican Senator Rand Paul said he was doubtful it would put the public's mind at ease.

[The President] was saying all the right things," Paul commented. "I want to stand up and cheer, until I realize what he just told me was all these great things about my privacy, except for he really, between the lines, told me he's going continue to collect all of my private records without a warrant."

One of the changes President Obama unveiled was to require NSA analysts to get approval from a judge before looking into phone records.

The agency could still gather any phone numbers involved in a conversation and the length of the call, but they would not be allowed to get an audio recording of the conversation.
