Sanya Khetani reporting … Spies Used A Fake Facebook Account For NATO's Supreme Commander To Get Private Personnel Information:


Last year, senior British military officers, Defense Ministry officials, and other government officials were tricked into becoming Facebook friends with someone masquerading as the current Commander of the U.S. European Command (USEUCOM), and NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe, exposing personal information to unknown spies, ZDNet reports.

United States Navy Admiral James Stavridis – who was in charge of operations in Libya against Colonel Gaddafi’s– now has an official Facebook page, while the bogus one has been permanently deleted, but officials are worried about the photos, phone numbers and email addresses that were compromised, The Daily Mail reports.
