SECRETS s pillerWiki Leaks is at it again, this time with hush-hush tidbits of how the U.S. spied on its allies aroundthe world.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon were just some of the world leaders targeted by the National Security Agency, according to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Among the conversati­ons recorded was a talk between Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and Netanyahu, who wanted Berlusconi’s help to make headway with President Obama, according to one leaked memo.

Another classified document keyed in on a discussion between Merkel and Ban over climate change.

“Today we showed that UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s private meetings over how to save the planet from climate change were bugged by a country intent on protecting its largest oil companies,” Assange said in a statement.
