The NSA will investigate reports that intelligence operators recorded calls from American journalists, military personnel, and humanitarian workers based in the Middle East, the agency said yesterday. The whistleblowers have said they confided their worries to superiors, but Mike McConnell, the director of National Intelligence, said yesterday that the NSA did not know about the problems until an ABC News investigation was published last week. Among the claims are allegations that NSA operators listened in on phone sex and then passed around the details. (ABC News)
