15. Lol but the Iranians and the rest of the world sure did!
Iran mocks U.S. for bugging UN nuclear chief

TEHRAN (AFP) -- Iran on Monday accused the United States of violating international law by allegedly listening in on telephone calls between the head of the UN's nuclear watchdog Mohamed ElBaradei and Iranian diplomats.

Government spokesman Abdollah Ramazanzadeh said the conversations did not even merit being bugged given that nothing secret was ever even discussed with the director of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

"This affair is not very important, because we don't have any secret discussions with Mr. ElBaradei and tapping the calls would not make any difference," the spokesman told reporters.

But he added that "this is not the first time we have seen the United States violate international rules.

"We would expect those people who spend their time accusing other of breaking international law to respect it themselves," he said.
