Tricky, tricky language

Obama must really think we are stupid:

President Barack Obama plans to call for an end to the government's mass collection of American phone data and restructure the program so the data is held outside the government, according to a senior administration official.

If the data is "being held outside the government" it is still being collected, and it is the collection that is the problem. This is basically the classic shell game. He wants to move the collected data -- the pea -- from the shell in his left hand to the shell in his right hand.

That's not an improvement. It's not even a change.
