Hey: Remember that really, really great USA Today story about NSA databases of domestic phone calls that got everyone chatting and got the paper all giddy about potential Pulitzers, etc., etc.?

What if turned out not to be all that true?

    Based on its reporting after the May 11 article, USA TODAY has now concluded that while the NSA has built a massive domestic calls record database involving the domestic call records of telecommunications companies, the newspaper cannot confirm that BellSouth or Verizon contracted with the NSA to provide bulk calling records to that database.
