When U.S. hacked major French politicians before 2012 presidential election

All major French political parties were targeted for infiltration by the CIA spies in the seven months leading up to France’s 2012 presidential election, Wikileaks claims.

The revelations are contained within three CIA tasking orders published today by WikiLeaks. Named specifically as targets are the French Socialist Party (PS), the National Front (FN) and Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) together with current President Francois Hollande, then President Nicolas Sarkozy, current round one presidential front runner Marine Le Pen, and former presidential candidates Martine Aubry and Dominique Strauss-Khan.
