Spying Practices Come Under Congressional Review

Defense One reports that the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence “will conduct a ‘major review’ of all intelligence gathering programs” after revelations that the National Security Agency has been spying on foreign leaders — including allies — for over a decade.

“There are currently two ongoing reviews of U.S. spying practices — a White House probe, run by the National Security Council, and an outside investigation, consisting of members appointed by Obama… White House spokesman Jay Carney said Monday that the White House review would be released by the end of the year.”
