Posted on 10/22/2013 2:13:16 PM PDT by bkopto
The NSA has been systematically eavesdropping on the Mexican government for years. It hacked into the president's public email account and gained deep insight into policymaking and the political system. The news is likely to hurt ties between the US and Mexico.
The National Security Agency (NSA) has a division for particularly difficult missions. Called "Tailored Access Operations" (TAO), this department devises special methods for special targets.
That category includes surveillance of neighboring Mexico, and in May 2010, the division reported its mission accomplished. A report classified as "top secret" said: "TAO successfully exploited a key mail server in the Mexican Presidencia domain within the Mexican Presidential network to gain first-ever access to President Felipe Calderon's public email account."
According to the NSA, this email domain was also used by cabinet members, and contained "diplomatic, economic and leadership communications which continue to provide insight into Mexico's political system and internal stability." The president's office, the NSA reported, was now "a lucrative source."

What difference does it make? President Obama ran guns to narcoterrorists in Mexico, guns that have been traced to the murders of thousands. And there has been no military response from our southern border.
Not me, my kids and my mom.
You are right.
Well, there sort of has been - the troops just invade one Chevy at a time.
Three and a half years of international spying marked " Top Secret".. imagine the level of trust .
Maybe this will make it into the World Court for international accountability and responsibility .
Pass the popcorn .. I am sure there is more comming .
It's ok if Obama does it says America's libtards!
they are recording every email, text, phone call and internet search on every person in the world. including all world leaders.....
Around that time George Soros bought a 22 million share stake in Petrobras and Obama loaned Brazil $2 billion for deep-sea drilling. Of course since that time Petrobras—through mismanagement and political interference—has dropped in production and profits.
In response to an inquiry from SPIEGEL concerning the latest revelations, Mexico's Foreign Ministry replied with an email condemning any form of espionage on Mexican citizens, saying such surveillance violates international law. "That is all the government has to say on the matter," stated a spokesperson for Peña Nieto.
Presumably, that email could be read at the NSA's Texas location at the same time.
