Snowden: NSA Spied on US Human Rights Groups

New testimony from National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden suggests the government has spied on leading human rights groups inside the United States. Appearing by video-link before the Council of Europe, Snowden said the NSA has "targeted either leaders or staff members ... of civil and non-governmental organizations" within U.S. borders. Snowden did not specify which groups, but asked whether they include Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, he replied, "Yes, absolutely." In his comments to European lawmakers, Snowden urged international action to rein in mass surveillance.
