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.
Sorry, where’s the problem here? Is this not the NSA’s job?
I assume the story is that President Obama agreed not to monitor a leaders phone calls? I have to assume that because this seems an awful lot like actual best practices for national security to me.
