Obama Aware Of Merkel Spying Since 2010: German Report – Yahoo News

October 27, 2013

Tras la publicacion de las primeras informaciones sobre el espionaje a Merkel, Obama aseguro a la canciller en una conversacion telefonica que el no sabia que la NSA estaba espiandola. Sin embargo, segun Bild am Sonntag, el director de la NSA, Keith Alexander, informo personalmente a Obama en 2010 de la operacion de vigilancia e interceptacion de comunicaciones iniciado a la canciller. Fruto de este espionaje, la NSA accedio a los mensajes de texto que Merkel envio con su anterior telefono movil y a las conversaciones telefonicas que mantuvo. No pudo acceder, en cambio, a las comunicaciones que realizo desde la linea segura de la Cancilleria. Los resultados de estas operaciones, a diferencia del modus operandi habitual, eran enviados directamente a la Casa Blanca, en lugar de al cuartel de la NSA, la base militar de Fort Meade, situada en el estado de Maryland.

“Obama did not halt the operation but rather let it continue,” the newspaper quoted a high-ranking NSA official as saying. Meanwhile newsweekly Der Spiegel reported ahead of its Monday issue that leaked NSA documents showed Merkel’s phone had appeared on a list of spying targets since 2002, and was still under surveillance weeks before Obama visited Berlin in June. The spying row has prompted European leaders to demand a new deal with Washington on intelligence gathering that would maintain an essential alliance while keeping the fight against terrorism on track. Germany will send its own spy chiefs to the United States next week to demand answers following the allegations that US intelligence has been tapping Merkel’s mobile phone, as the row threatened to fray transatlantic ties.
