WASHINGTON (AP) -- A senior administration official says President Barack Obama will call for stripping the National Security Agency's ability to store phone data from millions of Americans.

The official says Obama will not say who should ultimately hold the data. Instead he will call on the intelligence community and Congress Friday to consult on where it should be maintained.

A presidential commission has recommended moving the data to the telephone companies or a third party.

The official insisted on anonymity because this person was not authorized to discuss the president's decision by name.
