"The confidential memo reveals that the NSA encourages senior officials in its "customer" departments, such as 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.<quoted text>
Obfuscation and insinuation from a typical DemoPuke like you.
Gee, why didn't you point out this was also in the article:
"None of the monitored world leaders is identified."
Meaning back in 2006, the NSA could have been monitoring unfriendly nations like they should be doing.
You are an unbelievably moronic DemoPuke.
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."
So, is it your opinion that U.S. senior officials collect the cell phones numbers of leaders in "unfriendly nations"? You're a moron.
