The Washington Post  has released more of the information it received from the fugitive National Security Agency (NSA) leaker Edward Snowden.

The Post reports that an internal audit, the NSA found it had violated privacy rules thousands of times.

Some violations were as simple as typos that led to unintended searches, while others involved new collection methods that were ultimately ruled unconstitutional.
