Newly released NSA documents reveal that the National Security Agency has spent a lot of time monitoring heads of state in addition to Russian authority figures.  The document, which is in addition to other material coming forward, allegedly shows that the U.S. federal government spied heavily on the former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev during the London G20 summit meeting in 2009.

This latest revelation came way of the Guardian, which was the first agency to reveal that the NSA was monitoring and recording all communications with Verizon wireless customers.

The latest NSA document leak allegedly shows that U.S. agents were monitoring communications between Russian President Medvedev, his delegation and then they supposedly shared that intelligence with Great Britain and the commonwealths of Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

Titled, “Russian Leadership Communications in support of President Dmitry Medvedev at the G20 summit in London — Intercept at Menwith Hill station,” demonstrates that the NSA thought they may have discovered a way in which Russia was transmitting their messages.

The Guardian claims that the NSA document came not long after Medvedev met with U.S. President Barack Obama during the G20 summit in talks on key issues, one of which was nuclear disarmament.
