On Foreign Policy, Shane Harris thinks that the government keeping track of its citizen's phone metadata is "more invasive and a bigger threat to privacy and civil liberties than the PRISM system."

The Wall Street Journal reports that in addition to phone metadata, the NSA also is collecting metadata on emails, website visits, and credit card transactions (although it's unclear whether those collection efforts are ongoing).
