Um, how does an Ambassador have the legal right or ability to snoop on conversations of journalists? If John Brennan “arranges” it with “a friend”?

Hoft is a bit of a drama queen but this may actually be big. Isn’t sigint a CIA function? That would lead credence to your supposition.

I've always been a little queasy about the whole "Five Eyes" program, but, I'm sure you're right - the cooperation and coordination between various intelligence services, worldwide, to drive US policy is a reality.

I don’t know but apparently the UN ambassador has had some unmasking leeway...though it was historically only minimally used until Susan Rice, who not only used it but apparently it was used in her name with wild abandon by someone.

More to the point wouldn't there need to be a FISA warrant issued on Solomon? More crap left over from the Obama Admin?

Exactly the question I had when I read the headline. I really doubt that an ambassador could do that on their own authority. Someone above her must have made this happen.
