Brazil Admits Spying on U.S.

Et tu, Brazil? Despite righteous indignation and a cancelled state visit to Washington, Brazil admitted Monday it spied on diplomats from the U.S., Russia, Iran and Iraq. Ironically, despite its support for Glenn Greenwald publishing leaks from Edward Snowden, the government of Brazil said that the leaked classified documents detailing its own spying were “a serious crime, which will be investigated and prosecuted under the terms of the law." The spying, which took place a decade ago, involved trailing of diplomats, as well as documenting and monitoring activities at the U.S. embassy.
