U.S. Intelligence Bugged And Targeted EU Offices And Computer networks

Attacks From America: NSA Spied on European Union Offices -- Spiegel Online

America's NSA intelligence service allegedly targeted the European Union with its spying activities. According to SPIEGEL information, the US placed bugs in the EU representation in Washington and infiltrated its computer network. Cyber attacks were also perpetrated against Brussels in New York and Washington.

Information obtained by SPIEGEL shows that America's National Security Agency (NSA) not only conducted online surveillance of European citizens, but also appears to have specifically targeted buildings housing European Union institutions. The information appears in secret documents obtained by whistleblower Edward Snowden that SPIEGEL has in part seen. A "top secret" 2010 document describes how the secret service attacked the EU's diplomatic representation in Washington.

My Comment: If these reports are true .... it appears that the NSA is spying on everyone .... both friend and foe. On a side note .... when German Chancellor met President Obama a few weeks she brought up the NSA spying program. No reports on what was President Obama's answer .... but I suspect that these revelations are now making the White House very nervous. On a side note .... it is clear that NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden still has a lot more information and secrets to make public.
