The Obama administration has tightened rules governing how the FBI, CIA and other U.S. intelligence agencies use Internet and phone communications of foreigners collected by the National Security Agency.The Office of the Director of National Intelligence announced the new policy Tuesday. It requires that the data be deleted after five years if not relevant for intelligence requirements.The new policy "re-affirms" existing requirements that the government must delete communications to, from, or about U.S. persons if they lack intelligence value and were acquired under a specific statute that authorizes collection of data from Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Apple and other U.S. Internet companies.
