FBI, NSA Monitored Emails, Texts in Salt Lake City Area During Winter Olympics in 2002

The FBI and NSA monitored all emails and text messages in the Salt Lake City area in 2002 when the city was hosting the Winter Olympics, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Unnamed officials said the two agencies worked with Qwest Communications to intercept communications for nearly six months.

Former Sen. Bob Bennett, R-Utah, said he wasn’t aware of the surveillance but said it’s to be expected.

“If they were not intercepting text messages then they were not doing their jobs at the center of world attention,” Bennett said. “Sure they were. I just assumed that they were.”

The Olympics came just five months after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
