NSA Abandoned Project to Track Cell Phone Locations

barlevg (2111272) writes "The Washington Post reports that NSA director Gen. Keith Alexander testified before the Senate that the NSA experimented with a program to track location data from cell phones in 2011 but abandoned it because it lacked “the operational value” it needed.

It was not made clear what "operation value" they were seeking."
