NSA reading emails of private citizens

Raw Story has a story on NSA’s improper use of wiretapping technology. MSNBC interviewed a former security analyst who discussed how members of the NSA used their wiretapping abilities to read the email of private citizens. Risen reported that Bill Clinton’s emails had been read. He then clarified saying:

“It sounded like, from the former NSA analyst that we interviewed, that it was rare to access the emails of celebrities or famous people, but that it was fairly routine, according to him, for people to access the emails of girlfriends or wives or other people that they might know.”
