WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is urging Americans to "make some choices" in balancing privacy and security.
Obama is defending once-secret surveillance programs that sweep up an estimated 3 billion phone calls a day and amass Internet data from U.S. providers in an attempt to thwart terror attacks.
The president says it will be harder to detect threats against the U.S. now that the two top-secret tools to target terrorists have been so thoroughly publicized.
The National Security Agency has been collecting the phone records of hundreds of millions of Americans each day to learn whether terror suspects have been in contact with people in the U.S.
The NSA also has been gathering all Internet usage from major U.S. Internet providers in hopes of detecting suspicious behavior that begins overseas.

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. (AP) — Another two hours of talks are scheduled today in California between President Barack Obama and Chinese leader Xi Jinping.
They'll wrap up their talks with a range of issues. Obama and Xi met for several hours yesterday evening discussing cyber-espionage and other issues.
Obama says the U.S. and China are in "uncharted waters" as they tackle the contentious issue of cybersecurity.
The two leaders carefully avoided directly accusing each other of spying. But they acknowledged an urgent need to find a common approach to addressing the matter.
U.S. officials cast the more relaxed summit at a California estate as an opportunity for Obama and Xi to hold candid and free-flowing talks on the issues that define the relationship between the two countries, including the economy, climate change and North Korea's nuclear provocations.
TEXARKANA, Texas (AP) - A pregnant Texas actress who told FBI agents that her husband had sent ricin-tainted letters to President Barack Obama and New York City's mayor has been charged with threatening the president.
Shannon Guess Richardson was charged Friday in Texarkana, Texas. She faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of mailing a threatening communication to the president.
U.S. attorney's office spokeswoman Davilyn Walston says Richardson was arrested earlier in the day for mailing ricin-laced letters last month to President Barack Obama and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
It wasn't immediately clear if she has an attorney.
FBI agents wearing hazardous material suits were seen going in and out of Richardson's house on Wednesday in New Boston, about 150 miles northeast of Dallas near the Oklahoma and Arkansas.
