Mr. Rogers said the NSA is required to report any criminal or dangerous information collected on Americans and can hang on to anything it deems important for intelligence purposes.
"Why did Admiral Rogers say that, like that, at that time? It really surprised me. It really surprised my European allies. And to be totally frank, when I spoke about it to my NSA counterparts and asked why did he say that, they didn't really know how to reply either," he said. "Perhaps he went further than what he really wanted to say."
