From the CIA:

Fifty years ago, the CIA embarked on a project to intercept Soviet and East German messages transmitted via underground cable. Intelligence was collected to determine the best place to hit the target, and then concrete planning for a new collection site was begun.

Kinda nuts.

Years ago when visiting South Korea, I went on a tour of the DMZ (yes, they give tours). Part of the site is a showcase to a tunnel the North Koreans had dug into South Korea. Who knew, the CIA tried similar tactics in Germany.
