WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee is calling for a "total review of all intelligence programs" after allegations that the National Security Agency eavesdropped on the German chancellor — activity the Democrat says she wasn't told about.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Monday that while her committee was informed of the NSA's collection of phone records under a secret court order, her committee, quote, "was not satisfactorily informed" that "certain surveillance activities have been in effect for more than a decade."
She said President Barack Obama was not informed either that German Chancellor Angela Merkel's communications were being collected since 2002.
Her statement follows reports based on new leaks from former NSA systems analyst Edward Snowden indicating that the NSA listened to Merkel and some 34 other foreign leaders.
