What Difference Does the Difference Make

One of the arguments being made in defense of the indefensible phone number mining program by NSA is that it's only about the digits, that the administration can't draw any inferences from just the calling patterns.

According to ABC News that argument can be put to bed any minute now.
A senior federal law enforcement official tells ABC News the government is
tracking the phone numbers we call in an effort to root out confidential
"It's time for you to get some new cell phones, quick," the source
told us in an in-person conversation.
I'm not sure that this administration can be trusted to tell so little as the correct time any more.
