Steve Neavling

Federal intelligence agencies have been complaining of a lack of access to the NSA’s trove of surveillance information, creating what the New York Times called “turf fights.”

The Times reports that the NSA has been rejecting numerous requests for information from agencies working on cases that range from cyberattacks to money laundering.

NSA investigators said the requests were rejected because the cases weren’t considered high priority enough.

NSA officials maintain they have been careful about violating Americans’ privacy rights.

“It’s a very common complaint about N.S.A.,” said Timothy H. Edgar, a former senior intelligence official at the White House and at the office of the director of national intelligence. “They collect all this information, but it’s difficult for the other agencies to get access to what they want.”
