U.S. Taking Heat Over More NSA Activity

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) -- Boy, are they ticked. First it was the German chancellor who took President Obama to task over claims that the U.S. has been tapping into her cell phone calls for about 10 years.

Then there was a French report that the U.S. listened in on 70 million phone calls between its citizens. But the House Intelligence Committee chairman said that's rubbish, adding that "if the French citizens knew exactly what that was about, they would be applauding and popping champagne corks."

Now, the avalanche of secrets dumped by NSA leaker Edward Snowden suggests the agency listened in on 60 million Spanish phone calls in just one month.
