Was there ever any doubt?
Check it out:

The National Security Agency already has access to all the content of intercepted emails and phone calls, not just the “metadata” such as who contacted who, when and where, Defense sources have told WND.

The sources confirm President Obama’s effective admission Friday that the government is indeed collecting the content of calls.

WND reported, Obama said that “if anybody in government wanted to go further than just that top-line data and wanted to, for example, listen to Jackie Calmes’ phone call, they’d have to go back to a federal judge and, and, and indicate why, in fact, they were doing further – further probing.”

The president essentially said the NSA has access to the content and he is asking the public to trust the spy agency would go to a judge for permission if it wanted to look at it.

Making matters worse, there are people in the intelligence community who “aren’t concerned about the law or their oaths,” a Department of Defense intelligence training officer told WND.
