An addition to the schedule: President Obama met Wednesday morning with the group that has recommended changes to National Security Agency surveillance programs.
The Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies will “discuss the report they submitted to the president on December 13,” says the revised schedule.
That report will be released later Wednesday, said White House spokesman Jay Carney.
Obama and aides are reviewing the report, and the president will announce plans next month to revamp surveillance programs that have drawn intense criticism.
A federal judge said this week that bulk collection of phone and Internet data is probably unconstitutional.
Carney said, “we will be reviewing the review group’s report and its more than 40 recommendations as we consider the path forward, including sorting through which recommendations we will implement, which might require further study and which we will choose not to pursue.”.
