Shocking New Research Stasi Had Thousands of Spies in West Germany

New research has revealed that the notorious East German secret police, the Stasi, had a network of spies in West Germany that was much bigger than previously known. Thousands of people worked as informers and spied on their colleagues and friends -- including a priest who filed reports on a young Joseph Ratzinger.
