Politico; June 16, 2013 The director of national intelligence pushed back on assertions that the National Security Agency can listen in on domestic U.S. phone calls based solely on an analyst’s decision. “The statement that a single analyst can eavesdrop on domestic communications without proper legal authorization is incorrect and was not briefed to Congress,” the office of the DNI said in statement Sunday night. “Members have been briefed on the implementation of Section 702, that it targets foreigners located overseas for a valid foreign intelligence purpose, and that it cannot be used to target Americans anywhere in the world.”
