WASHINGTON, June 9 (UPI) -- A U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee member said Sunday the public needs to be better informed on the scope of government phone and Internet records access.

Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., said while the National Security Agency's vast monitoring program had been vetted by the legal system, the political uproar will linger unless the public is provided with more details on how the intelligence was collected and used.

"I'm calling for a wholesome debate all over the country," Udall said on CNN's "State of the Union. "Maybe Americans think this is all OK, but I think the line has been drawn too far toward 'we're going to invade your privacy versus we're going to respect your privacy.'"

FORT MEADE, Md., June 6 (UPI) -- The FBI is amassing millions of U.S. Verizon customers' phone records for a top-secret Defense Department domestic spying program, a court order indicates.

The program requires Verizon Business Services to give the FBI an "ongoing, daily" download of "all call detail records," including caller and recipient locations, call time and call duration, the court order leaked to the British newspaper The Guardian says.
