White House correspondent Victoria Jones, for Talk Radio News Service, questioned press secretary Jay Carney today about the National Security Agency breaching the "last bastion of American freedom" by spying through the mobile phone game "Angry Birds."

"The NSA is looking in the background in your game of 'Angry Birds,' waiting to scoop up all your personal data as you lob hapless creatures into the air," Jones said. "It seems like ... the last bastion of American freedom has been breached. I mean, there seems [to be] something particularly egregious about going after leaky apps."

Carney replied that he wasn't in the position to talk to reporters about specifics in the intelligence community.
