Latest Snowden leak: NSA plays 'Six Degrees of American Citizens' (VIDEO)

The National Security Agency has been using metadata to create profiles of American citizens, regardless of whether they are persons of interest in terrorism cases, according to the latest leaks from whistleblower Edward Snowden. These profiles include information on people's friends, locations and social connections, like a non-Hollywood version of "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon." In the meantime, the European Parliament Committee on Civil Liberties met Monday to talk about the state of privacy and surveillance in Europe. Meghan Lopez asks RT web producer Andrew Blake about the privacy implications of the latest Snowden leaks.
