The NSA undertakes to clean the spam email boxes it monitors.

Yesterday, the world discovered, thanks to the revelations in the Guardian and the Washington Post, the NSA (National Security Agency), a branch of American intelligence had access to private data of millions of users.

However, a willingness to listen and to continue to serve American citizens, the NSA publicly commit to clean email accounts that will monitor all spam and other unwanted email. « And Mr. Alexander continued: » In addition, for those who request it, NSA aims to block all pop-ups called ‘pop-up’ ‘she spy on computers in real time. « 

A press indecent

The service offered by the NSA has again outraged US politicians such as civil liberties advocates. This is the case of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which denounced « an eye for powder jet » Jameel Jaffer according to its deputy director, « Yesterday we learned that the Prism program was supposed to monitor only those based in the abroad. But this latest proposal of the NSA is only for US Internet users. I believe that the gentlemen of the National Security Agency take us for c … « Jameel Jaffer told us via Skype before a strange and abrupt termination of his connection.
