From USA Today:

Former President Bill Clinton says he has “serious
reservations” about spying on other world leaders, an issue that
has triggered some global criticism of President Obama.

“I think there ought to be very explicit rules on listening in on
conversations of world leaders,” Clinton said in an interview
on the Fusion network.

Clinton did not talk about what kind of rules, if any, he’d like
to see on surveillance of Americans’ communications, and claimed
the government didn’t have the technical ability to conduct the
surveillance operations during his administration that it does now.
He also pointed out some foreign governments complaining about US
surveillance were doing the same, or gave the US permission to
operate in their countries.
