The National Security Agency has broken privacy rules numerous times, according to a new report.

FOX News Radio's Rich Johnson reports from Washington:

The Washington Post says the National Security Agency broke privacy rules and went beyond its legal authority thousands of times every year in the five years since Congress expanded its powers.

Some were the results of typos, most violations were unintended. But others, says the Post, were significant violations of the law.

One example: NSA personnel were told to remove details in reports they were sending to the Justice Department and the Director of National Intelligence and substitute more generic language.
