Can the NSA Be Trusted? NSA Denies Spying on 70 Million French Citizens

leave a comment »

The NSA did not record 70 million French telephone calls, but it does carry out espionage in France, Intelligence Director James Clapper has said. Responding to media reports on NSA activities in France, he dismissed them as “false and misleading.”

The head of the National Security Agency (NSA) stopped short of   denying the US carried out espionage in France, but claimed the   contents of a report by Le Monde were “false.”  
  The French newspaper released an article on Monday describing the   espionage activities of the NSA on the French people. Citing   classified data leaked to the paper by former CIA employee Edward   Snowden, Le Monde wrote the US recorded 70.3 million phone calls   between December 10, 2012, and January 8, 2013.

…the intelligence chief did consent that “the United States gathers intelligence of the type gathered by all nations.”

  Le Monde claimed it has reason to believe that the US was not only gathering data on citizens suspected to be involved in terrorist activities, but also high-profile politicians and businessmen.
