Switzerland Probes U.S. Spying Following WikiLeaks Disclosures

In WikiLeaks news, Switzerland has announced a probe into whether the U.S. illegally spied within its borders. Swiss officials say the United States asked for permission to conduct a spying operation in 2007 but were denied for "lack of a legal basis." The probe will examine whether the operation proceeded anyway following WikiLeaks’ release of diplomatic cables showing the United States carried out spying in Switzerland as well as Iceland, Norway and Denmark without those governments’ permissions.
