Secretary of Satte john Kerry is admitting that the NSA has overreached – in a carefully calculated and crafted statement:
“The president and I have learned of some things that have been happening in many ways on an automatic pilot, because the technology is there and the ability is there,” he told a conference in London via video link.
“In some cases, some of these actions have reached too far and we are going to try to make sure it doesn’t happen in the future.”
His comments came as the US State Department announced that Kerry would embark on a tour of Europe and the Middle East, in part to repair the damage caused by reports that the US eavesdropped on on its allies, including monitoring the cell phone of Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel.
