NSA monitoring Americans' emails for mentions of terrorists: report - Yahoo! News: "The National Security Agency, which recently acknowledged the existence of a broad domestic surveillance program in the wake of former defense contractor Edward Snowden's controversial leak, is casting a wider net than previously thought, The New York Times reports.
The NSA is "not just intercepting the communications of Americans who are in direct contact with foreigners targeted overseas," a senior intelligence official told the paper. The agency also is "casting for people who cite information linked to those foreigners, like a little used e-mail address," systematically and without warrants, the paper said."
