President Obama on Wednesday sought to reassure Europeans that the United States is not “snooping” into their phone calls and emails.
He defended the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs, insisting they are focused only on counterterrorism, weapons of mass destruction, and cybersecurity.
“I can give assurances to the public in Europe and around the world that we’re not going around snooping at people’s emails or listening to their phone calls,” Obama told reporters at a press conference in Stockholm. “What we try to do is target very specific areas of concern.”
The president conceded that the U.S. “has enormous capabilities when it comes to intelligence” but said the programs were under review to prevent “situations where we’re gathering info just because we can.”
