Does Wikileaks have more examples of the U.S. government tapping the conversations of German Chancellor Angela Merkel?

The government accountability group teased the possibility this afternoon.

“Terrified talk in US national security circles that WikiLeaks is going to publish many CIA or NSA intercepts of Merkel tonight or tomorrow,” Wikileaks tweeted on Monday.

Previously, Wikileaks released “highly classified documents showing that the US National Security Agency bugged a private climate change strategy meeting; between UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.”

Intercepts of Merkel would only be the latest in a long line of examples of the U.S. government eavesdropping on world leaders.

Last year, Wikileaks published a long list of other examples, including:

“Back in 2010 we revealed that the then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had ordered her diplomats to steal the UN leadership’s biometric data and other information,” Wikileaks editor Julian Assange said last year.

“The US government has signed agreements with the UN that it will not engage in such conduct. It will be interesting to see the UN’s reaction, because if the United Nations Secretary General, whose communications and person have legal inviolability, can be repeatedly attacked without consequence then everyone is at risk.”
