Wikileaks: Os 15 Mais Renomados Grampeados por Obama, fora o Trump.
No sábado, li assustado que Trump acusou Obama de grampeá-lo em outubro, um mês antes da eleição nos Estados Unidos. O modo como Trump escreveu foi bem agressivo, inclusive chamando Obama de malicioso e doente (bad and sick). Veja bem é um presidente chamando um ex-presidente de gente ruim.
Minha primeira reação, foi, bom, eu já ouvi falar algumas vezes dos grampos de Obama, lembrei até da Dilma, que, segundo muitos, foi espionada pelo governo de Obama. Além disso, pensei: Trump manda no momento na CIA e no FBI, supostamente tem todas as informações das espionagens americanas, pode ter encontrado algo contra ele, quando Obama estava no poder.
Hoje com toda a repercussão das palavras de Trump, o site Zero Hedge mostrou uma lista dos grampos de Obama mostrados pelo Wikileaks.
Here Are The Top 15 'Obamagate' Wiretap Victims
WikiLeaks released the following list on February 23rd (see link here) of Obama Administration wire taps:
The US National Security Agency bugged a private climate change strategy meeting; between 1. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and 2. German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin;
Obama bugged 3. Chief of Staff of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for long term interception targetting his Swiss phone;
Obama singled out the 4. Director of the Rules Division of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Johann Human, and targetted his Swiss phone for long term interception;
Obama stole sensitive 5. Italian diplomatic cables detailing how Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu implored Italy’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to help patch up his relationship with US President Barack Obama, who was refusing to talk to Netanyahu;
Obama intercepted 6. top EU and 7. Japanese trade ministers discussing their secret strategy and red lines to stop the US “extort[ing]” them at the WTO Doha arounds (the talks subsequently collapsed);
Obama explicitly targeted 8. five other top EU economic officials for long term interception, including their French, Austrian and Belgium phone numbers;
Obama explicitly targetted the phones of 9. Italy’s ambassador to NATO and 10. other top Italian officials for long term interception; and
Obama intercepted details of a critical private meeting between then 11. French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Merkel and Berlusconi, where the latter was told the Italian banking system was ready to “pop like a cork”.
In addition to the above list we also know now that Obama wire tapped various individuals in the US media that were reporting information not flattering to the Obama Administration. It is widely known that Obama’s Justice Department targeted journalists with wiretaps in 2013:
In 2013 the liberal Washington Post expressed outrage after the revelation that 12. the Justice Department had investigated the newsgathering activities of a Fox News reporter as a potential crime in a probe of classified leaks. The reporter, Fox News’ James Rosen and his family, were part of an investigation into government officials anonymously leaking information to journalists. Rosen was not charged but his movements and actions were tracked.
Also in 2013, 13. members of the Associated Press were also a target of the surveillance. The ultra liberal New Yorker even noted that “In moderate and liberal circles, at least, the phone-records scandal, partly because it involves the dear old A.P. and partly because it raises anew the specter of Big Brother, may well present the most serious threat to Obama’s reputation.”
14. Reporter Sharyl Attkisson said in 2014 that her personal computer and CBS laptop were hacked after she began filing stories about Benghazi that were unflattering to the Obama administration. A source who checked her laptop said the hacker used spyware “proprietary to a government agency,” according to an article in the New York Post.
Update – 15. WikiLeaks tweeted overnight that the Obama Administration spied on their journalists as well:
Obama is no stranger to wire tapping. His administration tapped phones and computers of friends and foe alike.
Finally, we ask The New York Times, was this fake news?
