A report says the NSA spied on porn habits to discredit radical Muslims.

New information found in leaked documents from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden showed the NSA allegedly targeted suspected Muslim radicals by snooping on their Internet habits and gathering evidence of their visits to porn sites in order to embarrass them.

A classified document claims "radicalizers appear to be particularly vulnerable in the area of authority when their private and public behaviors are not consistent," according to an article co-written by journalist Glenn Greenwald.

The authenticity of the document has not been confirmed.
