Previously undisclosed files leaked to the media by former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden now show that the United States National Security Agency has been authorized to spy on persons in all but four countries.
One of the documents—a file marked “top secret” from 2010 and approved by the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court—shows that the NSA has been authorized to conduct surveillance on 193 foreign government, as well as various factions and organizations around the world, including the International Monetary Fund, the European Union and the International Atomic Energy Agency.
According to the Post, the NSA’s computers automatically filter out phone calls from Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand that would otherwise be collected using FISA. Even those nations, however, aren’t entirely sparred.
My personal feeling is that all this is getting old.
Everyone knows the NSA has its tenticals Everywhere.
My hope is that snowden will stop playing chess and release information that would seal the fate of the NSA.
If he has it of course .

That could get interesting. Everyone "knows" the NSA spies on everyone..........else. No one generally thinks the phone they hold right now is part of it and those are some important people represented for a public reminder that even their private lines were party lines for Fort Meade,

Very interesting! My observations are... we spy on the Pope, and Vatican City! As a Catholic I'm shocked, perhaps the Vatican should complain about separation of Church and State? Also I see that four nations are exempt ... Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Obviously they have equivalent surveillance of their citizens in those countries? I also wonder if there are intelligence agreements with those countries, to share intelligence? Imagine the NSA sharing gathered intelligence on US citizens with Canada or Britain!
