U.S. and German officials meet over NSA spying


U.S. and German intelligence officers are meeting in Washington this week to discuss new guidelines on how allies share intelligence and whether or not they spy on each other.

The meetings came under direction from President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. They follow a recent uproar over spying performed by the National Security Agency that delved into the communications of U.S. allies. The spying was revealed in documents leaked by Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor.

German officials say they want new limits put on the NSA.
