New Reporting: US Spied on German Media

While previous revelations showed that German officials have been the target of U.S. government spying, new reporting indicates that German press was targeted as well.

Both CNN and The Intercept reported Friday on incidents that took place in the summer of 2011 involving the CIA station chief in Berlin, who also represented the NSA at the U.S. Embassy; a top German government intelligence official, Günter Heiss; another senior intelligence official, Hans Josef Vorbeck; and the German news magazine Der Spiegel.

The publications' new stories detail an incident Heiss confirmed in testimony to the German parliament on Thursday.
