A new report by The Guardian says the NSA used information from the White House, State Department and Pentagon to acquire - then monitor - the phone numbers of 35 world leaders. On Wednesday, Germany became the latest ally to protest the scope of the National Security Agency spying scandal, when Chancellor Angela Merkel called President Barack Obama personally after finding out the NSA may have wiretapped her cell phone. Germany joins France, China, India, Mexico and Brazil as an ally the NSA targeted in its surveillance program. RT's Sam Sacks talks to Lizzie Phelan, head of the newsroom for Ruptly, about the latest diplomatic scandal brought on by the NSA leaks by whistleblower Edward Snowden. -RT.com
