Reports: German intelligence spied on White House

(Deutsche Welle) German news weekly Der Spiegel reported on Thursday that it had received materials documenting German surveillance efforts aimed at a number of US businesses and government, including the White House.

The Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND), Germany’s foreign intelligence agency, reportedly monitored email addresses at the White House with a list of some 4,000 selector keywords between 1998 and 2006.

Other targets included the US Department of State and Department of Treasury, as well as a number of defense agencies including the US Air Force and the Marine Corps, and the NASA space agency.
