Intelligence Officials Defend Spying On Allies

U.S. intelligence officials are defending their surveillance operations carried out in allied countries. Testifying on Capitol Hill, they said reports that the NSA intercepted phone calls of European citizens are "completely false" and based on a misreading of the leaked documents on which the reports were based. They did not deny monitoring the communications of European leaders, saying such intelligence-gathering is normal.
