After a listening device was discovered in a meeting room of the United Nations European headquarters, a United Nations security source compared the security to "Swiss Cheese", referring to the holes in the cheese.
The official went on to say that he is sure that many more listening devices would be found if they had the staff to do thorough searches not only in Europe, but in New York as well.
GENEVA (Reuters) - The United Nations European headquarters, where a listening device was discovered in a ministerial meeting room, is probably rife with secret spying equipment, a U.N. security source said on Friday.

"It's like Swiss cheese," a U.N. security source told Reuters, referring to the Swiss Emmenthal cheese which contains holes.

In the war on terror, and the increased security being put in place recently, it is rather disconcerting that a listening device could actually be planted and remain undetected?

With the technology that exists today, I was under the impression that one was able to do an electronic sweep which would detect any kind of listening device. Wouldn't you think that the UN would have access to the most sophisticated devices made today?
