(RT) — The U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) successfully cracked the encryption code protecting the United Nations’ internal videoconferencing system, according to documents seen by Germany’s Der Spiegel.

The United States was not just busy spying on the European Union, the report revealed, but had its surveillance apparatus trained on the international body as well.

The publication reported on Sunday that the electronic breaching of the U.N., which is headquartered in New York, occurred in the summer of 2012. Within three weeks of initially gaining access to the U.N. system, the NSA had increased the number of such decrypted communications from 12 to 458.
