WOODBURY - A New York Civil Liberties Union staff member spoke with News 12 today about the reports that Verizon and other companies gave the National Security Administration (NSA) phone records and other items.

Amol Sinha, who works for the organization's Suffolk County chapter, says Americans should be concerned over the reports. Sinha says the information creates a vivid picture of who a person is and their communication habits.

Today, President Obama defended the NSA, and said that no government official was listening in on phone conversations.
