WASHINGTON Dissenters within the National Security Agency, led by a senior agency executive, warned in 2009 that the program to secretly collect American phone records wasnt providing enough intelligence to justify the backlash it would cause if revealed, current and former intelligence officials say.
The NSA took the concerns seriously, and many senior officials shared them. But after an internal debate that has not been previously reported, NSA leaders, White House officials and key lawmakers opted to continue the collection and storage of American calling records, a domestic surveillance program without parallel in the agencys recent history.
The warnings proved prophetic last year after the calling records program was made public in the first and most significant leak by Edward Snowden, a former NSA systems administrator who cited the governments deception about the program as one of his chief motivations for turning over classified documents to journalists. Many Americans were shocked and dismayed to learn that an intelligence agency collects and stores all their landline calling records.
In response, President Barack Obama is now trying to stop the NSA collection but preserve the agencys ability to search the records in the hands of the telephone companies an arrangement similar to the one the administration quietly rejected in 2009. But his plan, drawing opposition from most Republicans, fell two votes short of advancing in the Senate on Tuesday.
A now-retired NSA senior executive, who was a longtime code-breaker who rose to top management, had just learned in 2009 about the top secret program that was created shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. He says he argued to then-NSA Director Keith Alexander that storing the calling records of nearly every American fundamentally changed the character of the agency, which is supposed to eavesdrop on foreigners, not Americans.
Alexander politely disagreed, the former official told The Associated Press.
The former official, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because he didnt have permission to discuss a classified matter, said he knows of no evidence the program was used for anything other than hunting for terrorism plots in the U.S. But he said he and others made the case that the collection of American records in bulk crossed a line that had been sacrosanct.
He said he also warned of a scandal if it should be disclosed that the NSA was storing records of private calls by Americans to psychiatrists, lovers and suicide hotlines, among other contacts.
Alexander, who led the NSA from 2005 until he retired last year, did not dispute the former officials account, though he said he disagreed that the program was improper.

LISBON, Portugal The government of the Cape Verde islands off West Africa says a volcano there has erupted for the first time in almost 20 years.
Prime Minister Jose Maria das Neves said in a statement posted on the government website Sunday the eruption was on Fogo, one of the archipelago’s 10 islands. No injuries were reported.
Das Neves said officials began evacuating residents after the eruption began Sunday morning. Civil protection staff and military were being flown to the island to help.
Geological services had warned in recent weeks that the Pico do Fogo volcano in the former Portuguese colony was increasingly active.
No further details were immediately available.

You can now buy Bitcoin virtual currencyand trade it for cold, hard cashat Pioneer Place mall. Local company BitcoinNW has installed a Bitcoin ATM in the Pioneer Place food courtas of November 15.
Bitcoin is an electronic currency that is not tied to any state governmentmaking it popular among web libertarians. But until recently, Bitcoins could be traded only on the Internet, and are accepted as currency only at a small number of businesses such as Whiffie’s Fried Pies food cart, burlesque-centric strip club Kit Kat Cluband the website Overstock.com. It is the most prominent such alternative currency, though a Beaverton programmer designed another popular currency called Dogecoin that briefly had more trading volume than Bitcoin.
Users of the Pioneer Place ATM can now trade the virtual currency for U.S. dollarsin $20 and $100 bills. The world’s first Bitcoin ATM was installed in Vancouver, B.C., in October 2013; Furs bought his first Bitcoin there. Seattle installed its first Bitcoin ATM in May. Two other Portlanders designed a Bitcoin ATM this year, but the Skyhook machine does not dispense cash. Other ATMs are located at PDX Hackerspace and Float On, but this is by far the most prominent location for a Bitcoin ATM.
Oregonian and former banker Mike Fors, founder of BitcoinNW, writes that he spent seven months working with the state of Oregon to comply with regulations in order to install the ATM. Though it works like an ATM from the user’s perspective, it is essentially an automated currency exchange: The value of Bitcoins versus the dollar has fluctuated wildly, from a peak of over $1,000 in December of last year to its current value of $400; the currency started at an equal exchange of one dollar per Bitcoin.
Fors also helps local businesses accept Bitcoin, which the company says avoids bank processing fees. One hurdle, however, is that due to the user verification system Bitcoin transactions can take minutes to process. The ATM removes this hurdle for point-of-sale transactions. The machine charges a 5 percent currency-exchange fee on transactions, which can be conducted for amounts up to $2,500 per day.
Here are Fors’ videos about how to use the ATM.
