As tensions mount between the United States and other countries over the NSA's once-secret spying programs, German news magazine Der Spiegel reported earlier today that the NSA has been spying on the goings-on at the United Nations' New York headquarters for nearly a year.

Der Spiegel cites a multitude of documents that "stemmed" from security-consultant-turned-leaker Edward Snowden which purport (among other things) that the NSA first managed to crack the UN's video conferencing system during the summer of 2012.
