The latest document leak from Edward Snowden suggests that all the phone and online data the NSA is collecting is being shared in raw, ulfiltered form with at least one country: Israel. That means, information on U.S. citizens is not being taken out before Israeli intelligence officials get their eyes on it. Cyrus Farivar, senior business editor at Ars Technica wrote about the news, and joins Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson to discuss.
