German Chancellor Merkel on NSA spy list since 2002

The German Chancellor’€™s mobile phone has been on an NSA target list since 2002 and was code-named “€œGE Chancellor Merkel”€, according to Der Spiegel. The paper also reports that President Obama assured Merkel that he did not know her phone was tapped. The monitoring operation was still in force even a few weeks before Obama’s visit to Berlin in June 2013.
