53. No, that's not what it says. They are tapping into foreign data streams for counter-intelligence

purposes. Sometimes, yes, a US citizen is talking to a foreign counter-intelligence target, so that person gets recorded, too.

From the link in the OP:

The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages []between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.
