Former Greek Foreign Minister: Greece Spied on US Ambassadors in Athens, Ankara in 90s

Might as well air it out now?


A former foreign minister of Greece says the U.S. is not the only country eavesdropping on foreign diplomats: his country's secret services did that to U.S. ambassadors in Athens and Ankara in the 1990s.

Theodoros Pangalos spoke Tuesday on Vima FM radio during a discussion about the latest revelations in the American NSA surveillance affair. The German magazine Der Spiegel has published a slide purportedly from the NSA showing Athens as one of the locations where the NSA had monitoring capabilities.
