Ad Feedback

French President Francois Hollande criticized U.S. electronic surveillance program, saying America's eavesdropping program must "cease immediately."

"We cannot accept this kind of behavior from partners and allies," Hollande said in an interview aired earlier this week

But the French daily LeMonde reported that a French intelligence agency has been amassing a "gigantic database" from monitoring emails, phone records and online Internet activities that six French intelligence agencies, police, and other security agencies can access.

According to the report, the French government may use its surveillance programs "to spy on anybody at any time."

"All of our communications are spied on," LeMonde asserted.

A French lawmaker said the program requires authorization and is legal.
