There’s a report that Israel has been listening in on some of Secretary of State John Kerry’s phone calls.

The German magazine “Der Spiegel” says Israel and at least one other intelligence agency were listening in on some of Kerry’s unsecured phone calls last year when he was holding Middle East peace negotiations. The report says Kerry has a secure line in his Washington, DC mansion but when he’s traveling, he sometimes uses an ordinary telephone. It was those calls the intelligence agencies tapped into.

The story says Kerry’s conversations were transmitted via satellite and “were listened to by at least two intelligence agencies, including the Israelis.” The report says it’s “probable that the Russians and Chinese were also listening in.” Neither Israel nor the State Department would comment on the report.
