WASHINGTON - The White House says it's releasing a task force report that recommends changes on how the National Security Agency collects intelligence data.

White House spokesman Jay Carney says the recommendations will be made public Wednesday, ahead of the schedule the White House had initially set.

Obama met with members of the group, called the Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technology, on Wednesday morning. Carney says the report was being released Wednesday because its contents were being mischaracterized in the news accounts.
