Obama Unaware as U.S. Spied on World Leaders

"The National Security Agency ended a program used to spy on German Chancellor Angela Merkel and a number of other world leaders after an internal Obama administration review started this summer revealed to the White House the existence of the operations," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"Officials said the internal review turned up NSA monitoring of some 35 world leaders, in the U.S. government's first public acknowledgment that the U.S. government tapped the phones of world leaders... The White House cut off some monitoring programs after learning of them, including the one tracking Ms. Merkel and some other world leaders... Other programs have been slated for termination but haven't been phased out completely yet."
