Reports: NSA spied on France and Mexico

According to a new report in the French newspaper Le Monde, the United States monitored over 70 million French telephone calls and text messages over the course of about a month late last year and early this year. That’s got French officials fuming, but France isn't the only ally troubled by U.S. surveillance measures. Mexico has demanded an investigation into a different report from German magazine Der Spiegel alleging that the NSA read former Mexican President Felipe Calderon's emails. Associated Press correspondent Lori Hinnant joins us from France to discuss the latest revelations and their ramifications. (Photo: A.P./Thibault Camus)
