Washington D.C.: Documents made available by Edward Snowden have shown that the National Security Agency or NSA – one of United States’ frontline intelligence agencies – discovered little more than new recipes from making samosas from the listening devices it had planted at Nitin Gadkari’s residence.
Apparently, Mr. Gadkari hardly talked about anything other than food at his home, often tasking his staff with making a new kind of samosa every day. Despite having the listening devices unmolested at his residence for several months, the agency discovered nothing else.
Meanwhile Snowden also revealed that the agency had placed bugging devices at the erstwhile Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh’s house as well. However, the agency was then forced to replace them at least twenty times thinking they were defective. “NSA later realized that the devices themselves were fine but Dr. Singh never spoke,” Snowden said in an emailed response to this reporter. “Or snored, or breathed in general… unless approved by someone called Madam Sonia.”
