WikiLeaks Publishes NSA Target List
As part of an ongoing series of classified NSA target list and raw intercepts, WikiLeaks published details of the NSA’s spying on UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, former French leader Nicolas Sarkozy, and key Japanese and EU trade reps. WikiLeaks never says this, but it’s pretty obvious that these documents don’t come from Snowden’s archive.
I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating. Spying on foreign leaders is exactly what I expect the NSA to do. It’s spying on the rest of the world that I have a problem with.
