Electronic listening devices were planted in U.N. offices in New York as part of an NSA bugging program known as the “Special Collection Service.”
“The surveillance is intensive and well organized and has little or nothing to do with warding off terrorists,” according to information on the program leaked to the magazine.
On Sunday, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said lawmakers remain largely in the dark over ongoing domestic intelligence programs run by the NSA.
“The American people want to know that those of us who are elected ... understand fully what's happening here. I don't think we do,” Corker said Sunday on Fox News.
