The United States told its Middle East diplomats in 2008 to collect data on "encrypted Israeli communications" and create financial and "biometric" profiles of Palestinian leaders, Reuters reported on Wednesday quoting a document recently released by WikiLeaks.

The document, signed by former US secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, implies that the Bush administration worried about not having enough intelligence despite its close ties with Israel and the Palestinian Authority, Reuters said.
