US spy chiefs admit snooping on Americans

Вот так.. В обшем, ничего нового.

President Barack Obama’s national security has team acknowledged for the first time that it has the ability to read the phone records of millions of Americans while looking for just one terrorism suspect.

Appearing before the Senate judiciary committee, John Inglis, the NSA’s deputy director, conceded that his agents can track the telephone activities of millions of Americans while searching for one terrorism suspect, but said that agents “try to be judicious” in their searches.

The Obama administration has previously stated that such records are rarely searched and, when they are, officials target only suspected foreign terrorists.

The searches described to the judiciary committee hinge on the “chain” analysis of information gathered on telephone communications. When the NSA identifies a suspect, it can look not just at their phone records, but also the records of everyone they call, everyone who calls those people and everyone who calls those people.
