'The National Security Agency spied on the future Pope Francis before and during the Vatican conclave at which he was chosen to succeed Benedict XVI.... The information gleaned was then reportedly divided into four categories -- "leadership intentions", "threats to financial system", "foreign policy objectives" and "human rights"....
Asked about the espionage claims, Federico Lombardi, the Vatican's spokesman, said: "We have heard nothing of this and in any case we have no concerns about it."' 
---Nick Squires, "US 'spied on future Pope Francis during Vatican conclave'", The Telegraph (U.K.), Oct. 30, 2013

has spied on the Pope.
"Get something on Francis!
Is he dealing dope?"

"Does he have a mistress?
Is he closeted-gay?
Can we get him to work
for the CIA?"

"Will he bow to Obama
like the mesmerized sheeple
even though the White House
has no steeple?"

"Is he any threat
to the Federal Reserve?
Because if he is
we'll throw him a curve."

"Is there a habit
he hasn't kicked?
Can we make him more pliable
than Benedict?"

"Is he sentimental
on human rights?
'cause that would put him
in our sights."

"Blackmail, money laundering,
corruption... Gee!
What the hell's going on
in that Holy See?"

    The Vatican's response:
    "We're not concerned.
    The Pope doesn't feel
    like he's been burned."

will spy on the Pope
thus helping the U.S. Empire
to cope.
