On Tuesday, as she kicks off the United Nations 68th General Assembly, she’s expected to vent those grievances to the globe by calling for more oversight and stricter rules to keep the U.S. from being a global peeping tom.

The U.N.’s annual six-day event is expected to be dominated by talk of chemical weapons in Syria, the terrorist attack at a Kenyan mall and the prospects of a U.S.-Iran rapprochement. But leaders of the Americas are bringing their own agendas, including allegations of U.S. meddling, development in the Caribbean and peace in Colombia.

Rousseff’s call for reining in U.S. intelligence is likely to resonate among nations that have been stung by the spying allegations that came to light after NSA contractor Edward Snowden began revealing details earlier this year.

If the issue comes up, President Barack Obama is likely to respond by making the point that U.S. intelligence activities also increase the security of its allies, Ben Rhodes, a U.S. deputy national security advisor, told reporters. via – MiamiHerald.com
