Snowden: NSA Spied on Al-Jazeera

Snowden: NSA Spied on Al-Jazeera

Der Spiegel is reporting that they have seen documents from NSA leaker Edward Snowden showing that the agency hacked into Al Jazeera’s communications system.

Al Jazeera has broadcast messages and propaganda from Al Qaeda for more than a decade.

One such document, dated March 23, 2006, reveals that the NSA’s Network Analysis Center managed to access and read communication by “interesting targets” that was specially protected by the news organization. The information also shows that the NSA officials were not satisfied with Al Jazeera’s language analysis.

The document also shows the hacking was deemed a “notable success.” It did not reveal to what extent the NSA spied on journalist or other employees of Al Jazeera.
