The controversial secret cyber spying programme run by America’s National Security Agency (NSA) foiled more than 50 potential terrorist plots in as many as 20 countries, including India.
“The plot included a previously undisclosed plan to blow up the New York Stock Exchange,” according to the testimony of NSA chief General Keith Alexander before the House Intelligence Committee.
Alexander, however, did provide further details of the terrorist plot “disrupted” or the name of the countries, arguing that it is classified information.
“It’s over 50 cases. The reason I’m not giving you a specific number is we want the rest of the community to actually beat those up and make sure that everything we have there is exactly right. I’d give you the number 50-X, but if somebody says, well, not this one.
