NSA Under Fire For Recording Phone Calls in Other Countries

Updated: Wednesday, March 19 2014, 10:45 PM EDT
The National Security Agency is under fire again after documents revealed the agency's ability to record entire country's phone conversations and store them for up to a month.

The program, compared to a time machine, was revealed in documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden. It's reportedly able to record 100 percent of the phone conversations in an unnamed country and play them back.

The program has apparently been in operation for several years, and the NSA plans to expand its cloud-based collection systems at a massive new "Mission Data Depository" in Utah.

The NSA would not comment on specifics, but says it uses a variety of tools to identify threats. There was no comment from the White House. NSA Under Fire For Recording Phone Calls in Other Countries
