The reach of NSA spying

Have you ever called Afghanistan? The NSA is still listening.

According to Reuters last December, the volume of information gathered from telephone and Internet communications by the National Security Agency without court-approved warrants was much larger than the White House has acknowledged.

But according to the New York Times, nearly a year later, the nation still doesn't know how great that reach may be and Congress is still undecided about how to deal with the spying.

"For all the sound and fury in the last year, the National Security Agency’s wiretapping program continues uninterrupted, with no definitive action by either Congress or the courts on what, if anything, to do about it, and little chance of a breakthrough in the lame-duck Congress," the Times writes.
