NSA monitored calls of 35 world leaders after US official handed over contact



quote:

The National Security Agency monitored the phone conversations of 35 world leaders after being given the numbers by an official in another US government department, according to a classified document provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The confidential memo reveals that the NSA encourages senior officials in its "customer" departments, such the White House, State and the Pentagon, to share their "Rolodexes" so the agency can add the phone numbers of leading foreign politicians to their surveillance systems.

The document notes that one unnamed US official handed over 200 numbers, including those of the 35 world leaders, none of whom is named. These were immediately "tasked" for monitoring by the NSA.

Snowden, Russia and friends doing another nice job of shoving a wedge in between the U.S. and its allies and interests.

The Judge is doing good work here:
quote:

Every American who values the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, every American who enjoys the right to be different and the right to be left alone, and every American who believes that the government works for us and we don’t work for the government should thank Edward Snowden for his courageous and heroic revelations of the National Security Agency’s (NSA) gargantuan spying operations.

quote:

I reject the argument that the government is empowered to take our liberties — in this case, the right to privacy — by majority vote or by secret fiat as part of an involuntary collective bargain that it needs to monitor us in private to protect us in public. The government’s job is to keep us free and safe. If it keeps us safe but not free, it is not doing its job.

A government of secracy and fear

I wonder if you were as outdone by all the leaks that were detrimental to US foreign relations under GWB (you know...like Abu Ghirab, Wikileaks, Manning, etc.).

We've been spying on our allies for decades and they've been doing the same to us. This is nothing new.

Looks like the USA is helping drive that wedge.

In 2008 Obama promised he would listen to all world leaders if they had something to say. He didn't indicate they would be aware.
