Christiane Amanpour follow-up

| No Comments

CNN reported this morning that “a senior U.S. intelligence official” made assurances to them that “the National Security Agency did not target CNN's chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour or any other CNN journalist for surveillance.” The article continues:

The senior official said that from time to time NSA surveillance overseas "inadvertently" acquires recordings or copies of communications involving Americans -- or what the government calls "U.S. persons," which includes most U.S. residents and employees of American companies. By law, however, such materials are required to be erased or destroyed immediately, the official said.

We can all sleep easier now, unless we’re not CNN journalists.
