Today, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, vice chairman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement regarding the President's remarks on the NSA intelligence collection programs:

"As Congress has known for years, these NSA intelligence collection programs are vital to our national security. I agree with the President that these programs have been mischaracterized, and we need to do more to make sure the American people understand why these programs are both legal and necessary. I believe there is a consensus among my colleagues that any modifications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act must be made on a strong bipartisan basis and must not impede the intelligence community's ability to prevent terrorist attacks."
