Phone Calls of Jean Bertrand Aristide being intercepted

National Security Agency Spied on Former Haitian Leader Aristide

Fallout from Edward Snowden's release of National Security Agency (NSA) files continues. Ira Kurzban, a Miami Attorney, revealed classified material from the Clinton administration, now available, showed in a 1994 file the NSA had been listening in on former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's phone calls.

Kurzban said the media considered hijacking Aristide's conversations to ". . . violate the U.N. charter and international law . . ." Public knowledge at the time; it did not change the government's behavior.
