    German Chancellor Angela Merkel did not know she had an Obama Phone.

      And of course a big applause for the german intelligence agency. If I were the German Chancellor they all could look for an other job.

    The BBC reports Obama has lied to Merkel. Based on a Der Spiegel recent piece –

    ‘Obama’s green light’

    Der Spiegel claims to have seen secret documents from the National Security Agency which show Mrs Merkel’s number on a list dating from 2002 – three years before she became chancellor.

    OK. Everyone who thinks France, England and Germany don’t monitor phone calls raise your hands… Ditto for the internet. For extra credit raise your hand if you think friendly European countries don’t monitor phne calls of people in the U.S. government. Regardless of what you think about states listening in or spying on the internet and transmissions everyone is doing it. Or more correctly every country that can afford to do it is doing it.

      As Peter Wright laid out in his book, Spycatcher, back in 1985, governments spy on each other constantly. Heck according to Wright, back in the late 1950s early 1960s, the first people the Brits phone tapped were other Brits, then they tapped the French Embassy in London.
      I wonder who at the UK’s GCHQ taps these days, and how much goes through unofficial/semi-official/official channels to NSA.

      Sorry Angela it is the nature of the beast.

    The Limbaugh principle at work again. The Little Dictator knew nothing and will have it stopped. It’s amazing what the Little Dic doesn’t know.

    The USA and Euroland were getting close to Free Trade Agrrement. One can only imagine how this GCF is going to derail those talks.

  6. R. de Haan says:

    What Press Freedom? The entire MSM has been transformed in a Government Propaganda Machinery. Any freedom will be abused.

    The establishment no longer serves our interests, only their own.

    In the past when a criminal government cheated and abused their people we knew exactly what what to do.

    Today we only blog about their crimes.
