Global outrage grows over NSA spying allegations

Under pressure, the Obama Administration has authorized the release of additional details about the American government's collection of telephone metadata.

Officials: Obama had no direct knowledge of spying

The Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said in a statement, "Their declassification is not done lightly. I have determined, however, that the harm to national security from the release of these documents is outweighed by the public interest."

Clapper and other officials will be testifying about the program on Capitol Hill Tuesday.

World leaders, meanwhile, are outraged over the allegations the National Security Agency was spying on their phone calls.

Senator Jim Risch, a Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, is OutFront with his take.
