U.S. Accused Of Spying On German Chancellor BERLIN -- BERLIN (AP) — German Chancellor Angela Merkel complained to President Barack Obama on Wednesday after learning that U.S. intelligence may have targeted her mobile phone, saying that would be "a serious breach of trust" if confirmed. For its part, the White House denied that the U.S. is listening in on Merkel's phone calls now. "The president assured the chancellor that the United States is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications of the chancellor," White House spokesman Jay Carney said. "The United States greatly values our close cooperation with Germany on a broad range of shared security challenges." However, Carney did not specifically say that that U.S. had never monitored or obtained Merkel's communications. The German government said it responded after receiving "information that the chancellor's cellphone may be monitored" by U.S. intelligence.
