The Director of National Intelligence has rebutted claims from a French newspaper that the NSA gathered more than 70 million recordings of phone calls from French citizens.
In a statement published on Wednesday, James Clapper, who oversees 17 different agencies, including the NSA, lashed out at Le Monde over a story published on Monday. Based on documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, Le Monde reported that the NSA made 70.3 million recordings of phone calls in France from December 2012 to January 2013.
