Recent NSA Happenings

After recent National Security Association scandals this year in the US, frustrations have moved to Europe. A Spanish newspaper cited documents released by Edward Snowden that the NSA monitored over 60 million phone calls last year in just the month of December. Similar outrage can be found in Germany and France where foreign leaders, most notably German Chancellor Angela Merkel, demanded explanations for the wiretapping laws broken within their countries by the NSA. As a product of these recent events, the Senate Intelligence committee has ordered a review of the NSA’s recent habits and it is currently under way.
