Make data companies, not NSA, store info

Outrage abounds, security concerns ascend. Where can it end? A suggestion: Require phone companies and all other purveyors of electronic traffic to store their own data rather than the NSA. Allow them to lease some storage space at the Utah data center and create mechanisms that absolutely prevent anyone from mining the data without a FISA warrant. Now, the NSA is out of it until it is required to be in it, the data is stored for future mining if a court deems it necessary, and the case is closed. Oh yeah, clean up the rubber stamp that is the FISA court.
