German Chancellor Merkel on NSA spy list since 2002 – reports — RT News

The monitoring operation was still in force even a few weeks before Obama\’s visit to Berlin in June 2013.In the NSA\’s Special Collection Service SCS document cited by the magazine, the agency said it had a \”not legally registered spying branch\” in the US embassy in Berlin. It also warned that its exposure would lead to \”grave damage for the relations of the United States to another government\”.Using the spying branch, NSA and CIA staff were tapping communications in Berlin\’s government district with high-tech surveillance.The magazine says that according to a secret document from 2010, such branches existed in about 80 locations around the world, including Paris, Madrid, Rome, Prague, Geneva and Frankfurt.However, in is unclear, Der Spiegel reports, if the SCS obtained recorded conversations or just connection data.President Obama, however, told Merkel that he was not aware that her phone was bugged, if he had known, he would have immediately stopped it, Der Spiegel reports as it also disclosed the recent conversation between the two.
