The Judiciary Report covered this topic on May 26, 2010 in the article Barack Obama Wiretapping Heads Of State, after it was stated Obama's Department of Justice, headed up by Eric Holder, illegally spied on the calls of former Jamaican Prime Minister, Bruce Golding during the extradition request for Dudus. At the time, the Obama Administration tried to deny the claim.
However, prior to the denials, my credible connection in Jamaica had stated to me over the phone regarding Golding and the Obama administration's illegal wiretapping, "they have him on tape." The tape claim was also discussed in the articles Newspaper Reports The NSA Is Illegally Spying On 35 World Leaders and The NSA Gets President Obama Into International Trouble Over Spying On Other Heads Of State, posted before the latest spot-on piece by the Guardian. This week, Snowden and the Guardian confirmed the illegal widespread spying targeting world leaders, creating a major scandal.
At the end of the day, Obama should not be spying on other heads of state and other heads of state should not spy on him either. So many laws are violated when this occurs. Not to mention, allies end up feeling violated, betrayed and underappreciated. This is not good for America's interests in the world. Here's hoping proposed legislation in Congress aimed at taming the problems transpiring, regarding widespread spying against innocent Americans and foreigners, will succeed.
