Wikileaks has released NSA files which reveal the US spied on Presidents Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy and Francois Hollande between 06 and 2012 , I
wonder when they’ll release the ones showing we British were also spied on or does the “Special Relationship” guard us from that …. I guess probably
On Tuesday, Wikileaks said it began publishing the files under the heading “Espionnage Elysee” – a reference to the French presidential palace.
It said the secret files “derive from directly targeted NSA surveillance of the communications” of the three French presidents as well as French
ministers and the ambassador to the US.
One of the files, dated 2012, is about Mr Hollande discussing Greece’s possible exit from the eurozone. Another one – from 2011 – alleges that Mr
Sarkozy was determined to resume peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians, possibly without US involvement.
A file dated 2010 suggests that French officials were aware that the US was spying upon them and intended to complain about it.
Yes spying happens and yes in some cases it’s justified but spying on your close allies ? , sign of a paranoid nation ? , sure looks that way to
Vive la revolution.
