>>> government surveillance maybe broader than has been disclosed. a report in the wall street journal says the nsa is able to cover 75% of all u.s. internet communications. the agency is interested in messages that begin or end outside the country but the capacity is so broad that solely domestic communications can also be swept up in their net.
