NSA spied on media

The National Security Agency (NSA), a US intelligence agency tasked with collecting data for foreign and counter intelligence operations, broke into the encrypted network of the Al Jazeera Media Network and several others in 2006, according to a report by US media.

A document provided to The Intercept by NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden shows that the NSA cracked Al Jazeera's Virtual Private Network (VPN), an encrypted tunnel used to secure internet traffic.

"Recently, NSA has decrypted a number of interesting targets ... deemed by product lines to have high potential as sources of intelligence," the document states, which is then followed by a list of targets.

That list includes Al Jazeera, the Iraqi Ministry of Defence and Interior, the Iraqi state internet provider and four airlines from Russia, Paraguay and Iran.
