In a report by the Associated Press, WikiLeaks claims to have published documents proving the NSA was spying on the last three presidents of France: Francois Hollande, Nicolas Sarkozy, and Jacques Chirac.
Here we go again. Remember when it was reported that the NSA listed German chancellor Angela Merkel as subject to surveillance, among other world leaders?
Well, guess what? We're at it again!
The AP reports WikiLeaks is claiming to have documents proving that our government has spied on the last three French presidents, Francois Hollande, Jacques Chirac, and Nicolas Sarkozy.
A spokesman for WikiLeaks is standing firm on this claim, stating he's confident the documents are authentic. The communications were allegedly intercepted between 2006 and 2012, both during George W. Bush's and President Obama's administrations. The communications reportedly included discussions about a top U.N. appointment, peace in the Middle East, the economic crisis in Europe...and the French president's cell phone number.
Not sure this will go over well with our Western allies. You can read the full story at AP.
What do you think vigilant viewers? Does this spying on allies fall under our national security?
