As it turned out, the US National Security Agency (NSA) used Denmark’s electronic surveillance systems to eavesdrop on US allies in Europe. As a result, Washington used Denmark’s submarine cables to listen to some high-level politicians and officials in Europe. Acting in cooperation with the Danish Defense Intelligence Service (FE), the NSA listened to German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Frank-Walter Steinmeier, then leader of the opposition and now President of Germany.

This is not the first time that the United States has been claimed to be listening to its “friends” in Europe come to the fore. In documents released by Edward Snowden, a former NSA employee, in 2013, it was stated that Merkel was being listened to through the US Embassy in Berlin. After the wiretapping scandal erupted, US President Barack Obama vowed not to listen to allies, but it is not clear whether the wiretaps reflected in the Dunhammer report were made before or after that pledge.
