The Wall Street Journal reported that The Central Intelligence Agency is amassing a huge database of international money transfers that includes the financial and personal data of millions of Americans.

Under the programme, the Federal Bureau of Investigation works with the CIA to collect large amounts of data on international transactions of Americans and others under the agency's terror investigations.

The programme is authorized by the same provision of the post-September 11th Patriot Act that allowed the National Security Agency to collect nearly all US phone records.
