NSA Surveillance Diplomacy

FILE - In this Oct. 11, 2013, file photo U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry looks out the window en route to the ISAF headquarters after an unannounced visit to Kabul, Afghanistan. President Barack Obama and Kerry are trying to quell international anger over the latest classified disclosures about NSA tactics by Edward Snowden, who is still in Russia. Those revelations, including the alleged tapping of up to 35 world leaders' cell phones, are threatening to undermine America's ability to put its imprint on world affairs.
